The Orquestra Clássica do Sul Education Department (DEOCS) is a scientific and pedagogic administrative structure, which includes Education and Music Education specialists.
The DEOCS aims at the promotion of the taste for, and the knowledge of erudite music, as well as it contributes to the dissemination of the OCS activities to different groups of residents in the Algarve and Alentejo. In addition, the DEOCS also aims to contribute the enhancement of the comprehension of the pedagogical relevance of the contact with erudite music by the members of educational institutions and communities, within these regions.
The departments’ work falls into several integrated strands, namely, the pedagogical support to the Concertos Pedagógicos OCS, the pedagogical coordination of the OCS artistic residences in schools, and in other educational institutions, besides the development of projects and education programmes designed for teachers, in collaboration with professional teaching-training centres in the Algarve and Alentejo.
