The LSU School of Music is proud to support Kids' Orchestra, a 501(c)3 organization building a community of creative and engaged students through music education in East Baton Rouge Parish.
As an El Sistema-inspired organization, Kids' Orchestra has adopted the guiding philosophy that music education can create great musicians and positively change the life trajectory of children in a given community. The organization works closely with our students and our school to provide elementary-age children with the opportunity to study music, learn an instrument, and practice the art of performance.
