Palm Desert
Sponsor of Free Community Concerts


We also travel directly to schools, bringing in Steinway concert grand pianos, if the school doesn’t have a proper instrument. And we always tune the piano! Outreach recital venues include elementary, middle and high schools. Since 2008 when the Waring began these outreach assemblies, Competition winners have performed for over 10,000 local students in all three local school districts. Study guides with program information, artist bio, composers’ bios and a glossary is made available to classroom teachers. Evaluation sheets are also given to the district or principal.

During the 2013-2014 school year, the Waring presented four assemblies reaching approximately 1400 students from the Palm Springs and Desert Sands Unified School Districts. The Waring pays for buses to bring students to large venues such as the Palm Springs High School Auditorium and to the Helene Galen Performing Arts Center at the Rancho Mirage High School.
