About GetClassical In School

Inspired by the German-based Rhapsody in School initiative, GetClassical In School brings charismatic performing artists to New York City classrooms. Building on the momentum of that initial school visit, students are invited to attend a formal concert performance of their artist. The initiative is geared toward heightening the concert experience and leaving a lasting impression on students despite the lack of sufficient music education in schools and appreciation for classical culture.

GetClassical In School is supported by an artistic and pedagogical advisory board that includes the iconic pedagogue Gary Graffman, former President of the Curtis Institute of Music, Pierre van der Westhuizen, Director of Gilmore Keyboard Festival, and Gerard Schwarz, Artistic and Music Director of Palm Beach Symphony.
