COMF’s Educational Mission: Enrich Lives, Stimulate Creative Minds

COMF’s Educational Mission: Enrich Lives, Stimulate Creative Minds

This week, artists from the Colour of Music Festival will be visiting local schools to share the beauty of classical music and hope to inspire young Charleston area school children.

On Tuesday, bassoon player Feleighta Green will visit Chicora Elementary in North Charleston, and violin player Greg Logan and trombone player Stephen Wilson will perform for students at Mary Ford Elementary, also in North Charleston. The fun continues on Wednesday and Thursday.

On Friday, students from Mt. Pleasant Academy, Thomas Meyer Head Start, West Ashley Head Start, and others will make their way to the Gaillard Center for a special COMF orchestra rehearsal and Q&A session.

Serving a culture that embraces and encourages arts and creativity, the Colour of Music Festival Orchestra’s educational mission is to deliver lifelong learning experiences to people of all ages with emphasis on works composed by black composers, as well as to enrich lives and stimulate creative minds in a variety of programs and formats and create unique moments of relevance in people’s lives.
