The Art of Successful Musical Outreach - Professional Development Workshop with the entire orchestra


Honestly, I could not have asked for a better outreach workshop for the WSO musicians. Our outreach presentations this year were more effective and engaging for the students, and the musicians felt more excited and confident. It has also prompted many conversations about how to grow this area of our organization. We will definitely be inviting her back again soon!

Samantha provided useful tools, ideas, and concepts with much needed enthusiasm that was contagious! She made outreach seem relevant not only to classical music, but also how it will relate to the rest of the WSO season! I really hope that she is able to come back and help our outreach program! Thank you for this opportunity!

This was one of the best presentations I have seen on any topic. I feel like Samantha is a naturally engaging and dynamic person. It was clear that she had done an incredible amount of preparation and was really invested in the subject matter as well as the group. Thanks to the WSO for making this first step to improve what we put out in our community.
