The Concerto Curriculum is the educational and community outreach program in which American Pianists Association artists perform for, and interact with, students and adults in schools, multi-service centers and retirement homes. Those schools with an orchestra or jazz band may qualify for a residency with one of the APA Fellows or Finalists that culminates in a public performance. Other Concerto Curriculum events may take the form of a master class, a workshop, or a solo recital followed by a question and answer session. These events are free of charge to the host site/organization. Each competition year the APA reaches over 5,000 people through these programs and performances.
The objectives of the Concerto Curriculum are:
1. To provide as many meaningful musical experiences as possible for the Fellows and Finalists.
2. To reach new and under-served audiences.
3. To provide career enhancement and pedagogical growth for the Fellows and Finalists.
The 2013 Classical Fellowship Awards residencies will take place at the following high schools:
Broad Ripple High School
Lawrence Central High School
Lawrence North High School
Southport High School
Warren Central High School
