The Music Enrichment Program (MEP) has been an important part of the Georgetown Symphony Society since 2000, fulfilling our commitment to provide classical music for our community.
The primary goal of the MEP is to provide high quality music experiences for students in the Georgetown area. Programs are given during the school day to allow all students to attend, and are always free of charge.
MEP has become an annual event for 4th & 5th grade students. GISD, Florence, Jarrell, and area private schools are invited. There are two programs, with approximately 1000 students and teachers per performance. Volunteers help with ushering.
Amazing soloists and ensembles have shared the wonder of music with a generation of students: the first performance by Van Cliburn winner and Georgetown favorite Jan Jiracek, Austin Civic Orchestra, Austin Opera, Elizabeth Pitcairn and her Stradivarius (“Red Violin”), American Chamber Brass, Austin Flute Ensemble, Anderson String Quartet, chamber ensembles from Austin CHAMPS program, Ft. Worth Youth Opera, and ensembles representing strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion and even bagpipes!
Performances of this magnitude are not free! Funding comes solely from grants and donations. The funds are used for artist fees, transportation, and incidental expenses.
