The Exploration of Music through Orchestra
The Exploration of Music through Orchestra is Indiana's largest joint orchestral program held in Fort Wayne, Indiana combining 15 area school string programs to play together. The program began as a platform to gain awareness to two of the only full orchestra programs left in Fort Wayne Community Schools systems, Northrop and Snider High Schools. Since then, the program has expanded to include area middle and elementary schools which gives those students a learning and educational experience.
The Exploration of Music through Orchestra has given over 1,200 students the opportunity and experience for the students and the growing audience of over 1,000 attendees. The talent of the students within the schools that have participated has impacted all involved. We understand the culture of the performing arts in the greater Fort Wayne area is extremely important, and that is why we are determined to continue to support, promote and encourage the students in the community through The Exploration of Music through Orchestra.
The Exploration of Music through Orchestra is an annual program held at the end of the school year before Summer break. As of 2017, Believe In A Dream, Inc. has donated over $58,000 to support 13 orchestral programs in the Fort Wayne Community Schools system.
