MUSE Orchestra

The after-school MUSE Orchestra is one component of Oakland Symphony’s MUSic for Excellence (MUSE) program.  Aimed at 4th-6th graders, the MUSE Orchestra is open to students from schools not served by our in-school mentoring program, as well as the 22 schools that are, ensuring all Oakland students have the opportunity to participate in our All-City Elementary Orchestra. This weekly program is designed to serve as a first training ground for the orchestral experience. The tuition-free program is fully sponsored by Oakland Symphony and hosted by Franklin Elementary School and the Oakland Unified School District.
