The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) has launched DSO Classroom, a new online hub for students, teachers, and schools at

DSO Classroom has been made possible with the support of a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant.

Through DSO Classroom, visitors can easily access music curriculum guides for educators, on-demand video access to DSO educational concerts, artist interviews, and behind-the-scenes content. In addition, the site can be used to register for free Live from Orchestra Hall: Classroom Edition webcasts, get information about joining the DSO’s Civic Youth Ensembles, and learn more about upcoming Wu Family Academy programming.

The page compiles the content of several previous pages under the umbrella of the Wu Family Academy of Learning and Engagement.

Longtime web partner Media Genesis helped to create the new pages, and the site’s video-platform services were designed by Brightcove, Inc.
