Education & Outreach Programs

In addition to providing our community with spectacular orchestra concerts, the El Paso Symphony Orchestra (EPSO) is dedicated to providing our community with high-quality education and outreach programs. Over one-fourth of the EPSO operating budget is devoted to producing a variety of performances that entertain and educate the residents of our city. These programs are funded by private and corporate donations. We sincerely appreciate and thank all contributors and volunteers, whose generous support make these possible.
