Community education and outreach
The Community Outreach Project plays a key role in fostering relationships between musical institutions and the Sudbury community by providing performance opportunities for students at events throughout the city and the surrounding areas. In addition to forging lasting friendships and collaborations with a large variety of groups and institutions, the project provides fertile ground for the development of a sense of community and civic responsibility in the participating students.
The society emphasizes the importance of music education in elementary and secondary schools and exemplifies the role of community support in ensuring their success. The society has helped provide instruments, financial assistance and other educational resources to many schools in the Sudbury district, with focus on both the maintenance of extant programs and the foundation of new ones. Students enrolled in guitar programs are invited to participate in the Sudbury Guitar Orchestra, and receive visits and performances by society members in their classrooms.
