Outreach in the Performing Arts at the University of Michigan School
of Music organizes performances by student musicians at schools,
hospitals, and retirement centers. the program encourages education
through community outreach.
Outreach in the Performing Arts encourages students to be engaged with the University, Ann Arbor, and surrounding communities. The program provides students with resources and support while they learn from the experience of live performances and interaction with community audiences.
Our faculty advisor, Professor Louis Nagel, is well connected with our community partners and audiences. He meets with students throughout the semester to help them prepare for performances. Students learn to select appropriate music for and to interact with various community audiences in a meaningful way. Students may elect to receive credit by enrolling in the Outreach in the Performing Arts course 683 (101 undergraduate or 401 graduate).
Audiences in the community unanimously praise our student performers and request that they return for future engagements. We believe that the program's education and therapeutic value for students and community members is invaluable.
