I am Holsey Kevin Gillis, director of Symphony Kids. It has been a pleasure to watch string students through the years grow and graduate from our program. If your child is in a Prince George’s County Public School orchestra and would be interested in our program, scan or click the QR code for registration and more information on the requirements to be a Symphony Kid.
The Anne Gentry Educational Outreach Program provides free music instruction to deserving Prince George’s County Public School students who would otherwise be unable to engage in such instruction. Students in the Anne Gentry Educational Outreach Program, also known as Symphony Kids, receive one-on-one music lessons with a qualified teacher during the school year, perform in an annual recital, and receive free tickets for their parents/guardians to attend Philharmonic concerts.
In addition, our Educational Outreach Program offers an annual side-by-side for selected students, occasional masterclasses led by our guest artists, and an annual celebration of Music in Our Schools.
