Financial Assistance

A2SO BUSSING SUBSIDY: The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra has limited funding available to subsidize the cost of bussing to the Link Up and Middle School Youth Concerts.  If you would like to apply for a bussing subsidy, please provide the necessary information on your Youth Concert Ticket Reservation form before November 1st, 2019. Award allocations are determined by an “Overall Need Score” that considers the following factors:

  • distance from the school to Hill Auditorium (25%)
  • number of buses needed (25%)
  • free and reduced lunch percentage (50%)

Teacher Resources

Carnegie Hall provides participating teachers with printed curriculum materials and ample digital resources for each piece featured in the concert. Those materials can be accessed and downloaded for classroom use here. The printed classroom sets of the resources will be shipped directly from Carnegie Hall in the fall for schools reserving tickets prior to October 14!

Teachers who have reserved tickets will receive access to a Google Drive folder in the fall (September 2019) with more information about the program and these resources.
