DSO LAUNCHES “DSO CLASSROOM” WEBPAGE, A RESOURCE FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS, WITH SUPPORT OF NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS GRANT
New page at dso.org/classroom offers curriculum resources as well as on-demand video of educational concerts, artist interviews, and more
Detroit, (September 7, 2017) – With the support of a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) has created DSO Classroom, a new online hub for students, teachers, and schools at dso.org/classroom.
DSO Classroom features music curriculum guides for educators as well as on-demand video access to DSO educational concerts, artist interviews, behind-the-scenes content, and more. Meant to be an easy-to-use resource, the page unifies the content of several previous pages under the umbrella of the Wu Family Academy of Learning and Engagement, the DSO’s education wing.
Visitors can also use DSO Classroom to register for free Live from Orchestra Hall: Classroom Edition webcasts, get information about joining the DSO’s Civic Youth Ensembles, and learn more about upcoming Wu Family Academy programming.
The DSO worked with Troy, MI-based Media Genesis, a longtime web partner, to create the new pages, and used video-platform services designed by Brightcove, Inc.
