music education

Host Fred Munroe speaks with guests from the Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation. They discuss their work of providing children access to a variety of arts programs, an opportunity for students to find their voices and selves in a sometimes unstable world.

For over 50 years, the San Luis Obispo (SLO) Symphony has provided a unique cultural experience and vital music education opportunities to communities throughout the Central Coast. Last year, more than 4,700 people from SLO County and beyond experienced the excitement of a live orchestral music performance by the SLO Symphony.

Marisa Waddell and Mike Nowak chat about the conductor's 30th year with the San Luis Obispo Symphony, the finale concert of the season, and the symphony's education and youth programs.

This week on Central Coast Voices, Fred Munroe will be talking with Joe Craven about music education and how it can help set a fire in our children’s creative spirit. Known to many of us as both the MC of KCBX’s annual Live Oak Music Festival and a truly gifted musician, Joe devotes a great deal of his time to igniting a passion for life through musical education. Craven is preparing to present a series of concerts at local schools, along with a public concert with Cal Poly Arts on October 25.
