Student Outreach Program

Each year, in addition to offering four public concerts, Palm Springs Community Concert Association sponsors an outreach program for students from elementary, middle and high schools in the Palm Springs Unified School District (PSUSD).  Many if not most of these students otherwise would likely not be exposed to the performing arts.  (86% of the families represented in the PSUSD exist at the poverty level.)

The Student Outreach Program offers two special concerts, which feature artists who also perform at the public concerts.  Over the years, literally thousands of students have benefited from this outreach.

Send Our Students to PS Concerts

The PSCCA has a new program called: "Send Our Students to PS Concerts.” The goal of this program is to enable more students to attend the PSCCA evening concerts. Although students get in free when accompanied by a ticket-holder many students’ parents cannot afford a season subscription or a single concert ticket for themselves. This program helps alleviate this problem by offering single concert tickets to parents of Palm Springs Unified School District students on a first-come, first served basis. As a result, the parent AND the student can attend the evening concerts at no charge. Tickets will be distributed by music teachers, band, orchestra and chorus directors and other arts personnel in the PSUSD.

Administration of the pool will be by the PSUSD Arts Department.

The pool of tickets to be distributed to parents of interested students is funded directly by PSCCA’s donation of tickets and PSCCA subscribers who have donated tickets to the pool.
