Melos' philosophy in outreach is proactive and strives to serve the community from within, bringing interactive concerts and education to local schools in underserved areas of the city.

Melos also works to bring Family Music to women and children of the shelter as a way of healing. Matinee concerts are intended to serve members of the community who do not have the means or opportunity to attend live evening performances.
