Ursa Ed

Our Ursa Ed programs bring the beauty of musical performance to the

next generation. Presentations include live performances, visuals and

audience participation breaking the material down in a way that is easy to

understand, stimulating for the imagination and most importantly, is a fun

and inspiring experience for everyone!


Designed and performed by the string members of Chicago’s Ursa

Ensemble, these presentations are crafted by artists who are dedicated

educators as well as serious performers. Students and teachers are guided

through a journey of sound from different eras, genres and cultures

exploring traditional and new sound effects, and learning how music can

relate to emotions, nature, art and so much more. The students will also be

encouraged to use their active listening skills, imagination and even empathy to relate to how the composers may have felt when writing the selected pieces.

“Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning.”
-J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Ursa Ed presentations include in-school demonstrations as well as family/all ages concerts for the community. They involve visual aids and student interaction on verbal, visual and physical levels.

In-school presentations are customized for students ranging from elementary through high school and are presented at local schools. Ursa Ed concerts enable students to experience live classical music in a setting that is that is fun and educational leaving them with a further

understanding of music and inspiration to be their most creative selves.
