OPEN REHEARSALS | Grades 6-12 and college students

We're saving a seat for young audiences at Boettcher Concert Hall. Each year more than 20,000 students in grades 3-12 and beyond engage with the Colorado Symphony to learn about and experience the exciting, enriching world of symphonic music.

PETITE MUSIQUE | Birth - Grade 2

This community concert introduces the instruments of the orchestra to young children. Performed by a 16-piece chamber orchestra and narrator, this interactive program includes the musical telling of an age-appropriate story, a sing-a-long and a lively dance-a-long, too.

IN-SCHOOL CONCERTS | Pre K- Grade 5, Grades 6-12

An ensemble of Colorado Symphony musicians visit your school to present an educational program of music combined with storytelling, math, or science that stimulates children’s imaginations and builds greater context for older students.


This highly flexible program provides support for music students of any grade. At the request of the teacher Colorado Symphony musician Teaching Artists can lead instrument demonstrations, listening/singing/movement workshops, coaching for band/orchestra students, advice for students interested in pursuing a career in the musical performing arts, composition/improvisation, or another specific request.


Take a look inside our Very Young Composers program—giving students with little-to-no musical training the opportunity to be more than just an observer. Colorado Symphony teaching artists work with elementary school students to create original pieces of music that are then performed in their school, community, and at Boettcher Concert Hall. Very Young Composers was started in 1995 by Jon Deak, then composer in residence with Colorado Symphony, and is now an internationally-recognized program. We are proud to present the work of these young composers.‚Äč
