Each season, ALIAS engages the community through its Education and Community Programs. Led by ALIAS violist Chris Farrell and Board Member Michelle Lin Doane, ALIAS musicians shared their talents with hundreds of children and adults this season. The programs included music by Kevin Keller and Kenji Bunch, and showed audiences how music is used to evoke emotions and images.
This season, ALIAS presented programs at Woodmont Christian Church, Glenview Elementary, Hume-Fogg Magnet (ALIAS’ PENCIL partner), Pearl-Cohn Magnet, and the Virtual School at Vanderbilt. Through its program at the Virtual School at Vanderbilt, ALIAS was able to reach students in Florida, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin. Each performance also included a Q&A session in which audience members were given the opportunity to ask questions about everything from the music they heard to what it takes to become a professional musician.
Through the Education and Community Programs, ALIAS is able to give back to the community and provide musical experiences that these children and adults might not otherwise have. Scheduling for next season’s Education and Community Programs will begin in the Fall. For inquiries, contact Michelle Doane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
