Community Ensembles


    Art Center East’s community ensemble programs provide high quality, community-based music instruction and performance opportunities through a long-standing partnership with Eastern Oregon University’s Music Department. Our community ensembles are designed to meet the unique needs of the communities by offering arts learning opportunities for community members age 12 and older. Our community ensembles perform free concerts at McKenzie Theatre on the campus of Eastern Oregon University.

    ACE private music lesson instructors offer private lessons in their studios to children, teens, and adults. Students receive instruction with a qualified and experienced music educator who tailors lessons to their existing skill levels while guiding them through new techniques, musical styles, etc.
