Class Act was created with students in the center and to bring Pacific Symphony directly to schools. Each year, thousands of Orange County students form relationships with their Class Act Teaching Artists that visit the school campus several times during the school year. The culminating event includes a field trip to Reneé and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall to see the entire Pacific Symphony perform a special concert, just for Class Act schools.

Here is what some Class Act participants have had to say about their experiences:
“Class Act has been a wonderful tradition that I look forward to every year. From getting to know the musicians, learning about the composers and seeing the joy on the children’s faces when they learn something new, the program is very near and dear to my heart. It is a true treasure!”
—Class Act parent coordinator and PFO Co-president
“The Class Act program has benefited our school and students by instilling a love and appreciation for classical music. Our school orchestra has grown substantially as we have partnered with the Pacific Symphony.”
—Class Act school principal
“My favorite part of the Class Act Year is the Youth Concert at Segerstrom. The students got to hear professional musicians and got to see what it looks like to pursue music at a high level.”
—Class Act school music teacher
“Through Class Act I have learned the impact that classical music has on children and how much classical music is in our lives.”
