Education & Outreach
Through our education and outreach programs, the WSO strives to expand the musical horizons of children and enrich the cultural lives of adults. We create opportunities for all ages to experience and participate in music in order to create a strong network of musicians and music supporters that will sustain musical expression in our community for generations to come.
WSO education and outreach programs are funded through grants and individual donations. If you would like to support our outreach efforts,

Through Music on the Move, WSO ensembles, solo musicians, guest artists, and Music Director perform throughout Central Wyoming, at schools, assisted living homes, and at community events, fostering a love of music throughout the region. Music on the Move creates fun, accessible, and engaging opportunities for people of all ages.
Music on the Move and the Children's Program
Each year the WSO brings music to over 4,000 K-College students in Natrona County. Inspiring the community through music, especially our next generation of musicians and music lovers, is at the center of the WSO's mission.
