An exciting educational partnership with Marietta City schools was established in 2014 with the new Georgia Symphony Orchestra residency at the Marietta Performing Arts Center.

Through this program, GSO professional musicians teach and mentor students, and provide enhanced music educational and performance opportunities to students in the Title 1 Marietta City school system.

In spring 2017, these mentorship activities expanded beyond the classroom. Members of the Marietta High School Band performed with Georgia Symphony Orchestra members in a Memorial Day performance on the Marietta Square.
