A quartet from the Phoenix Symphony Chamber Series plays for Phoenix College honors and music students in Sessions Hall

The Phoenix College Honors Program recently hosted the Phoenix Symphony Chamber Series, a free concert featuring a string quartet from the Phoenix Symphony. The symphony's slogan, "This is what community sounds like," reinforces the symphony's mission to be out in the community and provide educational experiences. 

The quartet played music from Mozart to contemporary films. The concert was attended by many, including Honors and music students. Following the performance, there was a question and answer session where PC students asked about the musicians' career choices, instruments, and lives. The PC Honors Program and Phoenix Symphony are dedicated to bringing more of this programming to campus throughout the academic year. 

The Phoenix College Honors Program is available to all Phoenix College students who have a 3.25 or higher Maricopa cumulative grade point average and at least 12 graded credits (100 level or above) and offers Honors classes, scholarships, personal advising, and the Honors Hub, a student space.
