Join us in Dexter Park at 8pm on Thursday, May 5th, for our next open rehearsal!

Spring is here, and the Extraordinary Youth Ensemble, ERB’s youth programming, is kicking into gear.

Over the winter, students have been learning trumpet, trombone, and saxophone in weekly individual and group lessons facilitated by our extraordinary EYE instructors.

Starting this spring, EYE students are meeting biweekly for ensemble rehearsal followed by a full ERB practice. Come to Dexter Park on Thursday to check out a joint ERB-EYE rehearsal! Bring instruments, noise makers, and shoes you can dance in!

EYE welcomes students from all backgrounds. Classes are entirely free, thanks to support from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts.


Interested in learning a new instrument? Check out more information on EYE high school programming here.
