Education and Outreach

The Diablo Symphony serves the community in a wide variety of ways.

School Concerts

In our “Music for the Schools” program, members of the Diablo Symphony are available for school assemblies tailored to a variety of levels, from fourth through eighth grade. The assemblies can be adjusted to fit within time and space requirements at your school. We are excited to now be in our tenth year of this highly successful program. Please contact [email protected] for more information.

Family Concerts

The Diablo Symphony performs concerts suitable for the whole family, both in the regular season and as special events. This year, we hope to bring back the very popular Free Family Concert and Instrument Petting Zoo, an outreach program that was unfortunately interrupted during the Covid-19 pandemic. Family members of all ages will hear fun and interactive music, and children will have the chance to try out different instruments to see which they like best!

Concerts at Rossmoor

We provide concerts for the Rossmoor senior community by performing at venues there for easy accessibility to great music.

Young Artist Award Competition

Every year, we provide the opportunity for a talented young musician to perform a concerto with the Diablo Symphony through our Yen Liang Memorial Young Artist competition.

Farmers’ Market

You can also find the DSO bringing classical music to Walnut Creek and surrounding communities in a variety of other ways. Look out for the DSO at the Farmers’ Market and other locations.
