about us

sympatico-full-01ASO Sympatico is an intensive music education program in Alexandria, VA.  Run as a partnership between the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra and the Alexandria City Public Schools, Sympatico offers free before- and after-school music education programming for K-5 students.  Our students benefit from one of five ensembles.

All ensembles are hosted at John Adams Elementary School, a Title I and minority-majority school that benefits from a longstanding dual-language program (English and Spanish) and a Kennedy Center arts integration partnership (Changing Education through the Arts).
