Education & Engagement

Britt Education & Engagement is doing its utmost to help keep our community safe during this difficult time. We will not be hosting in-person education activities until further notice, but we do have several virtual programs available. BrittVids, BrittKids Koncert Video Series, and the Britt Bridge Series are all available on our YouTube channel. We will continue to share our video content through social media each week, throughout the year. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Britt Education & Engagement continues to bring outstanding artists to southern Oregon to expand, deepen, and diversify its arts education programs at no cost to the community. Throughout the calendar year, we provide diverse music education and listening experiences which lead to a lifetime of artistic self-expression for musicians, students, and inquisitive audience members. We are committed to increasing access and instruction to students of all ages throughout the Rogue Valley, through in-school Residencies, Brittkids Koncerts for young children and families, BFO Fellowships for music majors, interactive performances for seniors, and other engaging presentations for our community. It is our mission to work in partnership with many organizations and individuals to support the ongoing vitality of 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.

The Kassia Ensemble is one of many ensembles and individual artists who visit local schools to work directly with students each school year through our Residency Program. Here, harpist Nuiko Wadden shows the music students at Ashland High School her score.  Kassia was also presented in a free concert for the community by Chamber Music Concerts.

"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."
