The best gifts we can give
to our children are the gift of experience. The Philharmonic
brings the experience of music to local children through
the Adventures In Music (AIM) program.
The following suggested donation

in our concert program and in materials relating to

Instruments In Combination, Single
School ($650 for 2 Workshops)
This program provides one of three ensembles -
a woodwind trio, a brass trio, or a percussion
ensemble - to perform two 45 minute workshops at your school. The performers are professional musicians and discuss their instruments while introducing music from different historical periods and parts of the world. This part
of the AIM Program is designed to reach 400 to 600 students
Young People’s Concert ($7,500) – Full-fledged symphony concerts are held at Riverside Municipal Auditorium during the academic year. Here, students experience music in a formal concert setting. Fashioned in the style of Leonard Bernstein’s “Young People’s Concerts,” these performances provide an informative and user-friendly setting for the students, many of whom are first-time concertgoers. This part of the AIM Program is designed to reach 3,200 students.
Riverside County Philharmonic/Performance Riverside Family Series - ($20,000) Many have observed how enjoyable the Philharmonic’s education concerts are for children. The challenge is creating opportunities that allow whole families to enjoy concerts together. So, to foster that joint experience, the Philharmonic is launching, in conjunction with Riverside Community College’s Performance Riverside, a Family Concert Series modeled on its highly successful education programs.
Beginning in early 2008, the Family Series will include one-hour versions of the Philharmonic’s traditional Saturday evening programs with guest artists and two special performances by Performance Riverside. Patrick Flynn will introduce and comment on the music as part of the Philharmonic performance. A post-concert reception will offer attendees an opportunity to meet the musicians and have “hands on” experience at the Philharmonic’s famous instrument petting zoo. In addition to families, these particular concerts are designed to make it more convenient for senior citizens who prefer not to drive at night.
