The R&B Outreach and Education Program
Renaissance & Baroque, Bringing Early Music to Pittsburgh, not only presents a concert series, but also produces an outreach and
education program in the community.
The musicians performing on the concert series extend their time in Pittsburgh to teach,
demonstrate, lecture, and perform in schools, universities, medical facilities, and concert halls.
The outreach and education
programs include multi-day residencies, lecture-demonstrations, masterclasses, workshops, and free performances. These activities are
primarily for elementary, middle and high school students, but musicians also work with community members and college and university
R&B maintains a special relationship with The Children's Institute. At the Institute, the musicians perform a free
concert for the children and staff. These performances, in many cases, are the only concerts by professional musicians these wonderful
children are able to attend.
R&B has sent musicians throughout the greater Pittsburgh region reaching thousands of community members
each year with our programs. In Butler County, R&B has sent performers to Moniteau School District and Slippery Rock University. R&B
sponsored a community concert in Donora. R&B has also been busy in Allegheny County with residencies in the Clairton School District,
Hampton School District, Mt. Lebanon School District, Pine Richland School District, and the Shaler Area School District. In Pittsburgh,
performers have gone to Homewood, the Southside, and Northside.

These professional musicians are able to create a program
to meet your particular educational needs; such as a program highlighting the music from a particular country to enhance the current
course of study. Often the musicians choose to work directly with the teachers and administrators to make sure a meaningful project is
