Community Outreach

Palm Beach Symphony’s community outreach events serve as the cornerstone of our efforts to reach Palm Beach County’s broad and diverse community.

Each season, in addition to our regular series offerings, we perform several mini-concerts throughout Palm Beach County and surrounding counties. These outreach events are often in support of community groups or foundations and allow us to reach beyond our concert venues to engage members of the community.

The mission of the Randolph A. Frank Prize for the Performing Arts is to recognize and reward individual performing artists and dedicated educators who enrich the quality of the performing arts in Palm Beach County, Florida. All established and emerging individuals who regularly perform or engage in performing arts education in Palm Beach County are eligible for consideration for the Prize, which will be awarded annually.

One to three winners will be selected and awarded a total amount of $10,000.

Palm Beach Symphony presents lively chamber music concerts enhanced by enlightening narration by local musicians, historians, and scholars.

These informative and engaging chamber music programs provide both entertainment and learning.

Both Playing Still: The Dean of Afro-American Composers and Treasures from the Spanish Providencia are intended to be performed without intermission with a total running time of approximately 75 minutes for an adult audience. Either can be shortened to accommodate a school performance of 45-50 min, or as needed.

The Middle Bridge Trio combines the worlds of European classical string playing and American fiddle music to create an intoxicating blend of concert hall and barn dance. Their fresh take on these two great traditions will have you admiring their skill and thinking about grabbing your neighbor and cutting loose on a do-si-do at the same time.

The Middle Bridge Trio are all members of the Palm Beach Symphony; Valentin Mansurov and Marina Lenau, violins, and Jeff Adkins, double bass.

Palm Beach Symphony Partners with Creative Arts Therapies of the Palm Beaches to connect all corners of the community through music. Through Nurturing Notes, our symphony musicians, and a certified music therapist from CATPB work with vulnerable and isolated populations throughout our community, such as seniors living in assisted living and memory care communities, at-risk children, Veterans and Holocaust Survivors with PTSD, and those receiving inpatient care for medical or mental health needs.

Through our musical masterpieces project, we work with diverse populations all over the community, children and adults to turn unusable donated instruments into works of art. We partner with Organizations that hold art classes, donate the instruments, and the art students get the opportunity to create musical masterpieces! During the 2018-19 season, 40 instruments were donated to NAMI, ARC, and the ELS Center of Excellence.
