Project Listen is the educational outreach program of Riverside Fine Arts Association. This program offers free educational performances by visiting musicians and area musicians to Jacksonville youth and the greater community. The programs are comprised of in-school performances for elementary students and seniors at assisted living facilities, and performances at the Church of the Good Shepherd for neighborhood school children and seniors. In addition, master class workshops led by visiting artists are available for advanced music students. Corporate and individual support, in addition to our annual Project Listen fundraiser, Taste of Talent, help to underwrite both the Project Listen programs and the student admission for regular RFAA season concerts. In addition, student tickets are always $10 unless otherwise noted. As funding becomes available, we hope to offer complimentary tickets on a regular basis.
Project Listen has grown to serve close to 22,000 students from over 50 elementary schools in Duval, Clay and St. Johns County.
Contact Stacy B. Aubrey, Executive Director [email] to schedule a concert or if you have any questions about our programs.
Prior to our scheduled performances we offer a complimentary study guide to aid teachers and their students with material related to their visit. We also work with the educators to incorporate their lesson plans into each concert. Click here to access our Project Listen Study Guide.
