The Idaho Falls Symphony Ambassador Program is designed to introduce elementary school students to classical music through interactive presentations during school. We showcase professional Idaho Falls Symphony musicians whose commitment to education goes beyond the concert hall, including the Symphony String Quartet, Woodwind Quintet, and the Idaho Brass Quintet. Our mission is to encourage the study of instrumental music and strengthen ties between critical thinking and listening skills, and to bolster the artistic education of elementary and middle school students throughout Idaho Falls and many other public school districts throughout the region.

This program is made available thanks to the Idaho National Laboratory through corporate funds from Battelle Energy Alliance, as well as grants from the Idaho Community Foundation, Arts Idaho, and private donations.

Also, new funding from Fluor Idaho enabled us to offer the Jazz Ensemble listed below, reaching three more schools.
