COT Education Department
The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle’s Education Department is growing! Check out our numerous initiatives below, or contact us for more information!
For our 2023-2024, with the introduction of the Durham Fellows String Quartet, the COT hopes to establish residencies in 8 pilot schools who will host us for several classroom visits, an assembly visit, and join us for a full orchestra performance at the end of the year.
For the 2022-2023 school year, we’ve had the opportunity to establish residency programs with Riverside High School and Durham School of the Arts. This year’s quartet-in-residence, The Verona Quartet, worked with each student orchestra for 9 class periods, culminating in a joint performance at the school.
Also this year, The COT began cultivating relationships with local elementary schools. The Verona Quartet partnered with Lyons Farm, Southwest, E. K. Powe, Parkwood, Fayetteville, Pathways, Club Boulevard Elementary, and Little River K-8 School. They performed for 4th, 5th, and 6th graders in classroom settings as well as interactive assemblies.
