Adopt a Musician

The Dubuque Symphony Orchestra and the Dubuque Community School District began the Adopt a Musician program during the Spring of 2011. Three musicians were "adopted" by the 4th grade classes at Bryant, Marshall and Prescott Elementary Schools. Their purpose of was to enhace the music education of the children by serving as musical ambassadors and teaching artists in the schools.

Adopt a Musician has been expanded to 14 schools and 10 musicians. In addition to Bryant, Marshall and Prescott Elementaries, Audubon, Carver, Eisenhower, Fulton, Irving, Kennedy, Table Mound, Holy Ghost, Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Anthony, Resurrection and St. Columbkille Catholic Elementary are also participating in the program. The musicians and teachers work together to plan lessons that will help the students reach the 4th grade standards and expectations in music. The DSO musicians demonstrate their musical instruments, engage the students in music making and discussion, encourage the students to play a musical instrument and answer questions.

Each school is able to adopt their DSO musician at no cost.
