Student Life

New York Philharmonic School Partnership Program

St. Athanasius is lucky to have a New York Philharmonic teaching artist who comes to teach 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students about classical music. The Teaching Artist integrates the Orchestra into the life of the school, and uses major orchestral repertoire to teach students, their teachers and parents how to listen to an orchestra and prepares them to hear concerts here at St. Athanasius and at the Philharmonic. This program makes music an essential part of the school community.
