Outreach programs overview

 

Reaching out to the community is important to us!

Free Tickets to youth available  — at our Third Sunday concerts we provide a limited number of free tickets to youth, ages 5-17, when accompanied by an adult (up to two youths per adult). At premier performances and special events, we offer discounted youth pricing.  This has been a hallmark of ICS since 2001.

 

 

 

Music on Wheels Our newest program takes professional musicians to local assisted living homes for an hour-long performance. As many residents are unable get out and attend live performances, ICS felt it was important to take the music to them. Studies have demonstrated that music enhances the memory of Alzheimer’s and dementia patients – as wells as having a positive effect on mental health, physical health, and social functioning in older adults.  For more info, click here.

 

 

 

Hospitality House ICS is pleased to invite guests of Hospitality House to our concerts when the opportunity arises.  In the past, Hospitality House have attended a special performance with pianist Nikolai Lugansky, the piano four-hands ensemble ZOFO , last season’s pianist Spencer Myer’s piano concert in November, and several Sierra Master Chorale performances. One comment from a HH guest was, “I’m not going to sleep tonight!” Their smiles and sincere appreciation with handshakes, hugs and smiles said it all!
