StudentAccess is Lansing Symphony Orchestra’s newest education program. The program was developed to encourage youth attendance and broaden the LSO audience by lowering student ticket prices to $14 for all MasterWorks concerts and offering a Student Night event once per semester. Student Night at the LSO will include free food, fun giveaways, and interacting with guest artists, LSO musicians, and staff. 

Student Ambassadors are selected every season to lead the StudentAccess program. We are now accepting applications for Student Ambassador (see below).
