Community

IRIS Orchestra’s commitment to greater Memphis is an integral and active part of its mission. IRIS’ Community Outreach and Engagement Programs partner with local schools, hospitals, and performance venues to bring the world-class musicians that make up the orchestra into the community it calls home. Included among these many partners are GPAC Youth Symphony Orchestra, and the University of Memphis Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music. During our Sixteenth Season we launched a new opportunity for IRIS to engage the Greater Memphis Community through our Family Concert Series.
