CLASSICOOL is Lyric's Classical music in School initiative. Without any cost to the school, Lyric sends renowned musicians to schools, both with and without a music program for concerts and workshops.

 

Education has been an important aspect of the Lyric Chamber Music Society of New York’s mission since its inception - - both for students and adults.  Lyric’s education programming began in April 1998, at our second public offering, when the great flutist, Jean-Pierre Rampal performed at two events in one day. 

The Lyric has brought chamber music to more than 7500 school students, and counting.  Our educational outreach in Manhattan is part of our commitment and our responsibility to introduce children to classical music.  Concert Masters and blossoming performers have performed in New York City schools, from Mott Hall II School, P.S. 191, WestEnd Secondary School, P.S. 1 in Chinatown and Frederick Douglass Academy in Harlem.  


The Lyric is expanding its education program by arranging appreciation classes in underserved schools by artists performing on our concert series. These events will be free of charge for the schools. Interested schools are welcome to contact our Executive Director.
