For over 34 years, the RSO Symphony Days program has introduced approximately 3,000 Richardson Independent School District students to the world of classical music on an annual basis. The musicians from the Richardson Symphony visit classrooms and provide students the opportunity to become acquainted with their instruments.

Following the school visits, students attend a concert at the Charles W. Eisemann Center for the Performing Arts, designed to showcase the development of orchestral music from the chamber music of Bach to a full orchestra of the present.

Beginning in 2014, we are adding an additional performance to the afternoon of November 4th in order to include several private schools and home-school networks.
