Notes in Your Neighborhood

Notes in Your Neighborhood is a series of program offerings which can be adapted for all levels of learning. Participants have the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with Philharmonic musicians, volunteers, guest artists and instruments for a deeper learning experience.


The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra’s (OPO) exciting Instrument Petting Zoo travels to area classrooms, community events and Orlando Philharmonic performances.

They give both children and adults the opportunity to see and hear the different instruments of the orchestra—up close and personal!

Musicians, both individual and in ensembles of all sizes, bring their training and performance experience directly to students and audiences throughout the Central Florida area. Programs are specifically designed to enhance your school music program or to engage your local community.

These programs give students and audiences an opportunity to meet the musicians of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, experience a live performance, see the instruments up close, and enhance understanding of music, performance practice and much more. Program prices vary according to the scope of your group’s needs, duration, and location. Interested in having one or more of our musicians visit your school or classroom?

Guest Artist Visits

The Orlando Philharmonic often teams up with local schools and community organizations to present up-close opportunities with visiting guest artists, composers and conductors. Visiting artists share their insights and experience with students and adults. Classes are often arranged on short notice as artists become available, and details are subject to change pending the rehearsal and performance schedules of the musicians.
