PERSONALIZED ATTENTION

We view each Primavera Artist as an individual and we tailor our program to suit their individual needs. In addition to their primary focus, some compose, conduct, or play jazz. We encourage each Artist to pursue their unique interests.

TOOLS AND RESOURCES    

With a generous gift from the estate of Dr. Norman Holland-Hull, we furnish every Artist with their own professional quality instrument from the Norman Holland-Hull Instrument Library.

COMMUNITY

The Primavera Artists are a unique group of extremely talented students. We foster the feeling of inclusion with group classes, performances, and workshops designed to address their individual needs and concerns as young musicians.

EXCELLENCE

Every Artist receives weekly private lessons with the best teachers in Philadelphia, and financial support for youth orchestras, chamber music programs, and intensive summer programs. Philadelphia has trained some of the world's finest musicians, and the tradition continues for our Artists.

RESULTS

Our graduating Artists are accepted into music programs at Universities and Conservatories. Some are the first in their family to attend college. They have performed at the White House and Carnegie Hall, and on tour in Italy and Iceland, among other triumphs.

HOPE

Almost 40% of Philadelphia's children live in poverty. While the dream of a life on stage can seem a world away in this environment, with the right guidance and tools for success, we take them out of a life of limited choices.

Our Artists act as force multipliers in their communities, spreading hope to other students, family, and neighbors. Their success will help others to dream big. Watch our short film to learn more.
