The Young Mannheim Symphonists program is designed to give school students and emerging musicians the opportunity to discover for themselves the magic of approaching music with appropriate performance style. As they are led through great musical masterpieces, and exposed to the knowledge and perception of experienced professional musicians, they are inspired by how the music comes to life, and empowered to begin making informed musical decisions on their own. 

Feedback from students who attend Young Mannheim Symphonists is testament to the relevance of our approach to music for young musicians. Students marvel at the way that historical and stylistic knowledge can be applied to their performances. They learn about how instruments have changed, and where to look for historical sources of inspiration. Watch the videos from Young Mannheim Symphonists to hear about their experiences.
