About Orchestra 2100
Led by Maestro David Michael Wolff, Orchestra 2100 serves Virginia and the surrounding region. Wolff is also Principal Conductor & Artistic Director of The Carolina Philharmonic (www.carolinaphil.org), a key partner. A unique feature of the ensemble will be its integration of cutting edge technologies through cross-disciplined partnerships to create an interactive audience experience that re-imagines new ways to experience the traditional Symphony Orchestra.
Encore! Kids comes to Virginia
Orchestra 2100's MTP (Massive Transformative Purpose) is bold and wholly education-driven:
To positively impact one million children through Music and Technology within the next ten years.
The primary purpose of Orchestra 2100's concerts/events is to create an extended community of private donors and major philanthropists to fund the Orchestra's MTP.
To this end, we aim to bring David Michael Wolff's Encore! Kids program to every 1st grade child in Virginia within the next few years. This will only be possible with your support.
Encore! Kids is an interactive orchestral experience program for K-2 students. Presented in partnership with local schools, it introduces young children to the symphony orchestra in a way that gets them really excited about learning music. They don't prepare to listen to an orchestra; they become the orchestra.

The present iteration will serve as a platform for cutting edge innovations in each new annual iteration. Our biggest improvements result from ongoing teacher/student feedback.
Educator Anna Stevens, who oversees the Arts programs in Moore County, NC, says:
The Encore! Kids [program] has been the vehicle to open the eyes, ears, and hearts of our students to the wonderful world of music. The ability to be an active participant brings music to a higher emotional and cognitive level in our children than simply being a passive listener. These ongoing participatory performances are building within our children a joy for music that they will carry with them throughout their life.
