  • Digital/Mobile Storytelling in Parramore

    Using Augmented Reality Interactive Storytelling, the documentary invites young audiences to step back in time and walk in a restaurant owner’s footsteps as he prepares for a special event—meeting people and seeing places from Parramore’s past along the way.

  • Interactive Expeditions

    A mobile research lab that employs modern satellite technology and two-way video conferencing in order to connect at-home learners with instructors who are live in the field. By giving students the opportunity to communicate live and face-to-face with distant cultures and faraway peoples, INTX aim to replicate the advantages of hands-on learning for students in a virtual classroom setting.

  • Young Composers Challenge

    The Young Composers Challenge is open to young musicians in the Southeastern U.S. The Challenge is simple. First, you can take part in an extensive workshop with world-renowned composers. Then you will have all summer to write your own score. In September, a panel of judges chooses the top three orchestral and ensemble pieces, and these will be performed by the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra at the Bob Carr Auditorium. The winners earn money for themselves and their music teacher.
