Community Outreach

Music For Life

This vital outreach program partners the Southwest Florida Symphony with its home,  ensuring youth and other community members in need have access to the healing benefits of live classical music regardless of their ability to pay. Area non- profit organizations offering aid and social services to Lee County’s underserved may request up to 20 free tickets (subsidized by the Symphony and by our Sustaining Partners) per performance to share with their customers. Contact us to connect us with new community partners!

Area college and university students are encouraged to join us for highly affordable $5 Rush Tickets at the box office one hour before the performance. This Symphony-subsidized opportunity fits nicely into the schedule and budget of every busy college kid who needs some relaxation and inspiration!

Sound Lab

Meet the instruments of the orchestra up close and personal. The Sound Lab is a traveling interactive display of string, brass, woodwind and percussion instruments that provides hands-on experience for young students or adults. The program offers an introduction to instrument families and the role in the orchestra. The instruments can be taken to and shared with community families through invitations to fairs, art shows, markets, and other community events.

To invite the Sound Lab to your event, please contact Kara Griffith at
