Advance classroom study will be supported by Colorado State Music Standards and Common Core aligned materials featuring this program’s repertoire.
Grades: 3 – 8
Time: Two performances daily: 9:50 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. (50 minutes)

Cost: $5 per student/adult. For groups of 20 or more, the coordinating teacher attends free. Financial assistance is available.
Ludwig van Beethoven is having a birthday celebration and you’re invited! Join the Colorado Symphony as we imagine which of Beethoven’s friends would celebrate with him. Students will hear music by the birthday boy himself, by composers who influenced him, and by composers who were affected by him. Get your party hats ready and make your reservations early!
