Mobile Symphony musicians and guest artists visit Mobile and Baldwin County Schools for 45-minute assemblies. These performances give students the opportunity to see and hear the instruments of the orchestra up close. In addition to hearing the instruments, students get to talk to musicians and guest artists about what it is like to play a musical instrument, how they started playing music, and what their lives are like.

In some cases, Mobile Symphony also brings a “Musical Instrument Petting Zoo” to the school so that following the assembly students can touch and try to play the instruments they have just heard.
