Community Engagement and Education
Bringing musicians into the schools
Education and community outreach are cornerstones of the Kerrytown Concert House mission. As school districts in southeastern Michigan have curtailed their art and music classes due to financial constraints, KCH has become an invaluable educational resource for students throughout the region. The Concert House brings internationally renowned musicians directly into the schools to perform and discuss their art, providing unique and exciting experiences for students who otherwise would not have the opportunity to learn from world leaders in classical music and jazz.
Whether performing at a school site or a special mini-concert for students at the Concert House, the musicians who participate in KCH community engagement and educational programs include professionals who are much in demand throughout southeastern Michigan. They are members of symphony orchestras, instructors at the Eastern Michigan University and University of Michigan schools of music, and performers on major concert series across the country.
Lectures, events and partnerships
Kerrytown Concert House presents and sponsors lectures, multi-media productions, poetry readings and other special events. In addition special partnerships with Ann Arbor arts organizations help to enhance KCH’s programming with off-site concerts in interesting venues. Please watch the calendar for special concerts and events.
