The Leo Kucinski Academy of Music opened in the fall of 2004 and focuses on private instruction, monthly workshops, and performance classes for student musicians from beginner to high school. Through a partnership between the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra and Morningside College, the academy also directs the symphony’s three youth orchestras and an Early String Program for beginning string players ages four and up. Students of the academy come from Sioux City and surrounding communities in Iowa, South Dakota, and Nebraska.
