Retirement Home Recitals
CSO musicians present house concerts in retirement homes whose residents are unable to access main-stage performances because of mobility or other health restrictions. An atmosphere of intimacy allows the residents, and especially those with hearing impairments, to get close to the music, and to meet the musicians.
Primary School Visits
Primary school students are introduced to the instruments of the orchestra in fun-filled, highly interactive presentations. For many students, this will be their first encounter with orchestral instruments and, we hope, will trigger a life-long love of music.
Ensembles of CSO musicians perform for pre-school audiences and their carers in libraries across Christchurch City and the Selwyn District. These high energy musical bombs comprise singing, dancing, and story-telling.
