Guest speakers and professional performers offer insights into their particular musical field at each performance, which is followed by a reception. The March program is for members of the Tuesday Morning Music Club. At the Awards Concert in April, student scholarships for musical study are presented.
Other activities of the Junior Extension include: social events, field trips, open rehearsals of the Springfield Symphony and Master Musician Classes.
