Education and ASYO

At the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, we are changing lives through music.

In schools, concert halls, and public venues, the Alabama Symphony Orchestra educates, entertains, and inspires. For many who participate in our educational programs, the performance marks the first time they have heard a live symphony orchestra- and it is something they will remember for the rest of their lives.
For some, the experience will be life-changing.

At the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, we strive to empower our community to celebrate and advance our symphonic culture by actively supporting the endeavor for excellence in music education. We seek to become an indispensable partner in the education of our community’s children and to create sustainable, meaningful programs and partnerships that foster strong relationships with schools and families. As Alabama’s orchestra, we aspire to reach all citizens of the greater Birmingham area and the state of Alabama, truly diverse audiences reflective of our unique makeup, and to provide programming that is ever more relevant, imaginative, and exciting. Through a world-class orchestra that offers extraordinary performances, we strive to inspire in our community a life-long passion for music, learning, and creativity.
