Organization Description: The mission of the Josiah Quincy Orchestra Program is to ensure the long-term musical and social success of all students, and to positively impact our student musicians, their families, and the community through quality education and performance. The JQ Orchestra Program is the largest of several music and arts initiatives at Josiah Quincy Elementary School, and in 2015-2016, we will serve 165 students in five orchestral ensembles, a kindergarten musicianship and paper orchestra class, and a Children’s Choir.

Working in collaboration with JQOP staff and faculty to facilitate both ensemble learning and individual progress, the Supporting Teaching Artist will teach in alignment with JQOP and El Sistema’s philosophy of musical excellence and social inclusion for all students. All teaching artists will ensure the highest quality learning and social experience for all JQOP students, support each child holistically, and be active members of the JQOP community.
