“As an instrumental music teacher in the Hartford Public Schools, I have seen students inspired by the Hartford Symphony performances, leading them to dream of one day performing at the Bushnell. The power of live music cannot be underestimated and the Hartford Symphony offers an invaluable tool for students to aspire towards a musical future.”
