Community Engagement Program
Through community outreach, CSU faculty and students have the opportunity to perform and create innovative programs that both engage with a diverse array of audiences and enrich people’s lives.
Professional Performer Program
Our “Professional Performer” program connects the community with both advanced students and faculty to play for paid services. This program provides professional level performances while also giving students and faculty an opportunity to share their music and connect with the surrounding community. To find a Professional Performer or chamber group please contact Jessica.Warner@colostate.edu.
Harmony Outreach Program
With our “Harmony Outreach” program, students provide volunteer performances where they can take their instruments out of the concert hall and find repertoire that will best engage the demographic they will be performing for. This program gives students important real-life experiences and skills that can build the foundations they will need as performers and educators. In collaboration with local organizations, our students play in multiple venues including schools, retirement homes, and homeless shelters. To request a Harmony Outreach performance please contact Jessica.Warner@colostate.edu.
Harmony Outreach Competition
The competition is a new way for music students to work together to create innovative programs aimed towards specific audiences in the community. This year, the competition will consist of multiple groups presenting music in an interactive presentation meant for children. These groups will audition for a panel of judges in front of a live audience at Organ Recital Hall at the University Center for the Arts. The winning group will receive a $1000 prize and will be featured in three outreach concerts in elementary or preschools in the community.
