As northern Michigan’s champion of live orchestral music, it is our mission to entertain, to inspire and to educate. We are a group of talented professional musicians who understand our role in teaching students of all ages, and bringing music instruction to area schools and music programs to foster a love for music and musical performance. We are inspiring the next generation of musicians! More information about any of these programs can be obtained by calling the GLCO office at 231.487.0010.

LITTLE WAVES LIBRARY SERIES
Open to the public, and free of charge, this program is designed to introduce young children to music in an entertaining setting. This family friendly music series is aimed at encouraging children’s involvement and interest in music.
DAY FOR MUSIC
This program offers a day of instruction with Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra (GLCO) musicians and more! Special seminars/workshops are conducted and the day culminates with a concert featuring all musician levels performing with GLCO musicians. Pre-registration is required. Public is welcome.
GLCO musicians present music assemblies in many area schools, working with specific teachers to expose students to various instruments, composers and styles of music, often expanding on what has been taught in the classroom. New developments underway for 2020-21 season!
