Youth Concerts

We're Back in the Hall!

For the 2021/22 Season, we’re excited to return to Boettcher Concert Hall for in-person events.

 Reservations are available now!

Free Virtual Package also available.

Lift Every Voice

This year’s theme for youth concerts is “Lift Every Voice,” which delivers a message of unity, social justice, and creative self-expression. 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, engaging, and enriching world of symphonic music. Advance classroom study will be supported by Colorado State Music Standards and Common Core aligned materials featuring this program’s repertoire.
