Education & Engagement

Britt Education & Engagement is planning to resume a full schedule of in-person Residencies, BrittKids Koncerts, and Britt Festival Orchestra Fellowships for the 2021-22 school year and 2022 summer season. If in-person events are not possible for any reason, we will convert or replace all offerings with related virtual programs. We continue to produce many entertaining, educational videos that are available to the entire community on our Facebook and Instagram channels. All of our educational videos are regularly available on our YouTube channel: the Britt Bridge Series, BrittVids, BrittKids Koncert Video Series, Scout’s Sing-a-long Songs, and our new Residency Artists Series. We will continue to share our video content through social media, throughout the year.

Britt Education & Engagement brings outstanding local, regional, and national artists to the southern Oregon community to expand, deepen, and diversify its access to arts education at no cost to the community. Throughout the calendar year, we provide access and interconnectivity to students, families and arts enthusiasts, which leads to a lifetime of artistic self-expression and enjoyment. We are committed to increasing access and instruction to students of all ages throughout the Rogue Valley, through in-school Residencies, BrittKids Koncerts and BrittKids Klub for families with younger children, Britt Festival Orchestra Fellowships for strings Master’s degree students, interactive performances, and other engaging presentations for our community. It is an important part of our mission to work in partnership with local arts organizations, educational institutions, and individuals to continue to offer these transformative programs at no cost to the participants.

Your generous support makes these programs possible.  Please consider making a donation to Britt Education by clicking on the blue “Support Education” link on this page today!

Mill City String QuartetThe Mill City String Quartet, which features Britt Festival Orchestra cellist Ruth Marshall, is one of many ensembles that visit local schools to work directly with students each school year through our Residency Program. In February of 2020, the quartet visited public middle and high school orchestra programs, as well as a homeschool collective for students under age 10.

 

 


"Many of my students have never seen professionals perform, and ALL students get a very intimate and personal performance that they would not get elsewhere through Britt's Residency program. Students are inspired and energized by these performances; they really like being able to get to know them as humans and see how music has enriched and guided their lives."
