What does the Theme from Harry Potter and Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals have in common? They are both pieces of music enjoyed by young children the world over!

Every year, the Richmond Orchestra takes a small ensemble into Richmond elementary schools and performs these two wonderful pieces for the students. The teachers are provided with materials to introduce the music beforehand and are encouraged to integrate the themes from the Carnival of Animals into the general curriculum. Because the performance takes place in the school, the children have the opportunity to get a close up view of the players and see just how the various instruments are played.

Our goal for our 2016-2017 season is to perform Carnival of Animals at six elementary schools in the Richmond School District. This program depends on the generous support of our donors and sponsors. If you are a supporter of music for children and want to see this program continue in our Richmond Schools, we invite you to consider making a donation to this outreach program: http://www.roca.ca/donate/

A national day to support your non-profit community! After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the back-to-back days of deals, join us in kicking off the holiday giving season on #GivingTuesday!

ROCA is proud to be a part of the arts and culture community and we hope you will participate by making a charitable gift in support of our Elementary School Concert Series for advancing music education.

When schools face shrinking enrollment and budgets, music and other art education classes are often eliminated or drastically cut. The intention of our Elementary School Concert Series is to supplement and support the work done by public school teachers by offering a concert free of charge to schools which gives students the opportunity to hear and engage in live orchestral music appropriate for their age. The accompanying Teacher’s Guide also gives teachers invaluable ideas on how to integrate music into other curricular areas.

With the delivery of this program, we hope to achieve the following:

- Create awareness for other cultures by studying history, literature, language and other aspects of culture using music as the vehicle
- Encourage student engagement, comprehension and motivation by creating new avenues of learning and communicating through the language of music
- Encourage creativity and imagination
- Encourage enthusiasm for orchestral music and the arts in general
- Encourage cross-curricular learning and teaching
