At Strathmore, we believe the arts do more than entertain—they inspire, ignite, and illuminate our lives. Dive into education opportunities here!
Education Programs for Children
Learning about the arts is energizing, revealing, challenging, and downright fun! In addition to our student ensemble opportunities (Maryland Classic Youth Orchestras and Strathmore Children's Chorus) kids can join us for interactive, hands-on, and informative education programs including Saturday Family Jam Sessions, MCYO Summer Strings, and more.
Learn about our programs for students through Montgomery County Schools and other community groups on our Bloom pages.
