The Las Vegas Philharmonic is rolling out the music van
The Philharmonic’s Music Van will serve three broad functions: educational outreach, senior community support, and community engagement. As a mobile education and outreach program, Music Van will engage the diverse community within Las Vegas with customizable programs including:
- Classroom music support programs using specially designed musical instruments for young children
- Instrument demonstrations, chamber music programs, and composition programs for students in middle and upper grades
- Music performances and music therapy experiences for senior communities and individuals
- Community events featuring opportunities to play different instruments, jam with Philharmonic musicians, and create music with family and friends
Beginning in late 2018, Music Van will implement these types of programs in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson. As the program develops over a 3-year period, the Music Van will be able to serve more communities through Southern Nevada, including Boulder City, Mesquite, Moapa, Laughlin, and more.
Music Van will deliver programs that are customizable depending on the needs of the group engaged in the activity. Some accommodations include sensory-friendly programs for special needs individuals, bilingual programming in Spanish and English, as well as adaptive technology.
