Learning Community

Our Learning Community works directly with educators, leaders, and other organizations to learn about the challenges and aspirations of our city and its people.

The mission of the ISO's Learning Community is to connect people with inspiring musical experiences that meet community needs.

The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s Learning Community works directly with educators, leaders and other organizations to learn about the challenges and aspirations of our city and its people. By dedicating the time to build understanding and relationships, we are able to apply the unique resource of a professional orchestra to support and improve our community with creative programs and partnerships.

Above and beyond the hundreds of outstanding concerts performed each year by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, the ISO Learning Community delivers a wide variety of programs that serve the community, reaching 80,000+ people per year.
