Since January of 2015, BRSO has partnered with Gardere Initiative to create a weekly after-school music program for students in the Gardere community. This program has included BRSO’s “Plug in to Music” program which engages middle- and high-school students in a dialogue about music by inviting them to share their favorite tunes and exposing them to live and recorded performances of instrumental music, an instrument petting zoo for younger children, and even the full concert-night experience for students and their families.


BRSO is generously supported by the City of Baton Rouge and the Parish of East Baton Rouge and by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism. 

BRSO also receives substantial support from the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge and the National Endowment for the Arts, Art Works.
