Community Engagement

LAMP and its partners are committed to sharing the outstanding musical talent and incredible works studied here through a strong community engagement program offered to children, adults and seniors along the South Shore.

For every week our guest masters and student musicians spend at LAMP, they agree to give at least two hours to our community engagement programs. These may include focused classroom workshops or 500-student assemblies at South Shore schools; our popular preschool program, attended by groups from the Lunenburg Day Care Centre, as well as children accompanied by a parent or grandparent; and concerts at area nursing homes. We also offer the public series, A Little Light Music, brought to you by the Town of Lunenburg. These free one-hour presentations feature visiting artists who talk about their careers and artistic inspirations interspersed with performance. It's a great opportunity to learn more about great music and get a taste of the outstanding artists appearing here at LAMP.

If you are interested in more information about these programs, or ways you can support them, please contact Susan at 902-634-8667 or email gm@lampns.ca.
