The Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s Dream Out Loud Music Education Advocacy Campaign uses the experiences and stories of CSO members to inspire young musicians to continue their musical studies and to persevere during periods of challenge or frustration.

Dream Out Loud is built on a deep understanding of the challenges that music educators face in their classrooms every day — specifically retaining students in their school music programs. Dream Out Loud is appropriate for classroom use for middle school through high school students, including beginning and advanced instrumentalists, parents and music educators. Dream Out Loud materials, including posters, print and video profiles, are free to music educators and other music organizations.
