A key program goal is to enrich students' and teachers' learning experiences by exposing them to outstanding local cultural resources. Each year the O'Donnell Foundation, in partnership with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, sponsors Night at the Symphony at the Meyerson Symphony Center. The Create Schools for Excellence in Fine Arts Education program provides every AP Music Theory grant teacher with a resource to take their students on a field trip each year. Teachers can choose to attend a symphony performance at the Meyerson Symphony Center or an opera at the Winspear Opera House.  In preparation for a final dress rehearsal, participating grant teachers research and present educational materials the week prior to the event. Field trips to musical cultural events provide students with opportunities to see and hear historically significant literature performed first hand. Students will also exercise the important critical skills of analyzing and evaluating musical scores and performances.
