Outreach Programs

Partnership and collaboration turn good things into great.

Outreach Programs are ensemble classes taught in partnership with the Blaine County School District. No registration fees are charged for the classes and students may qualify for an elective credit through Wood River High School. These ensembles are taught by School of Music faculty with the cooperation and assistance of the school music teachers. Ensembles include:

B-Tones – men’s vocal ensemble for grades 9-12

There is no audition to join the B-Tones. You simply have to be willing to be dedicated to one of the most committed groups on campus. This group meets twice each week to prepare songs to be performed around the area. A great group of supportive focused singers. Requirement: All students must be an active participant in a high school band, choir or orchestra.

Enchanté women’s vocal ensemble for grades 9-12

A non-auditioned vocal group committed to finding the joy in singing. Enchanté is not designed to replace participation in the larger high school choirs, but rather to augment that work. This group meets twice weekly and enjoys many opportunities to perform around the area.

Elementary string program for grades 4-5 violin, viola or cello students

A wonderful introduction to the fun and rewards of learning to play a stringed instrument. Students work with dedicated instructors and high school mentors as they are introduced to their instruments. This group meets twice weekly at the Community Campus or Wood River High School. Information about instrument rental is available.

Classroom Outreach

In addition to their work with Core Program, Developmental and Outreach Programs, School of Music faculty go into school music classes each week to assist music teachers and work with individual students as needed. They also use this time to help identify students who would benefit from additional study in their chosen music discipline. The Sun Valley Summer Symphony is truly committed to supporting music education.
