In late 2018, the Las Vegas Philharmonic will launch Music Van, a mobile community engagement and music education program. The van will offer instruments designed specifically for children; chamber music; instrument demonstrations and composition programs for middle- and high-school students; music therapy performances; and opportunities for members of the community to play with Philharmonic musicians. Also planned are sensory-friendly programs for people with special needs and bilingual programs in Spanish and English. The Philharmonic noted that Music Van is part of its commitment to “bringing music to people where they are” and engaging with communities in new ways. Over the next three years, the Philharmonic plans to expand the program to southern Nevada’s Boulder City, Mesquite, Moapa, and Laughlin.
