The KCO brings music into New York City schools.

Thanks to generous funding from Goldman Sachs, the KCO brings innovative, interactive music programs, free of charge, into New York City schools.

In 2019, the KCO brought "Wonder Women of Classical Music!" into Lower Manhattan public schools. Featuring an all-female ensemble of the KCO's finest musicians led by the KCO's esteemed concertmaster Belinda Whitney and featured violinist Joyce Hammann, the program showcased works by classical women composers and exciting contemporary women composers.

In 2018, the KCO teamed with Manhattan Brass for "Blast Off with Brass," and blew the socks of kids all around Lower Manhattan.

In 2017, the KCO guided young listeners deep into what it takes to create, perform and appreciate a masterpiece with "Why Mozart Matters!"
