Sept. 3, 2021 – Denver, CO – The Colorado Symphony announces that it will provide free access to its virtual educational concerts and curriculum for the entire 2021-22 season. Free access to virtual concerts will include the Lift Every Voice Youth Concert, Sensory Friendly Concert, Petite Musique: The Three Little Pigs Concert, and The Story of Paul Bunyan. Free access will also include concert specific educational curriculum, digital story, and activity books for students.  

However, due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 health pandemic and with children 12 and under being ineligible for COVID-19 vaccination at this time, the Colorado Symphony has made the decision to postpone planned 2021 Youth Concerts at Boettcher Concert Hall with planned rescheduling for spring 2022. 

“In our commitment to make symphonic music accessible to all, we are delighted to offer teachers, students, and families across Colorado access to our inspiring educational virtual concerts,” said Jesse Martinez, Director of Community Education. “We believe in the power of music to uplift our communities and we hope that through this offering we can bring the transformative power of music to classrooms and homes throughout the state.”  

The Colorado Symphony’s 2021/22 MusiCurious Youth Education Programs will feature in-person performances, bilingual programming, and a yearlong focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, highlighted by the “Lift Every Voice” (LEV) Youth Concert series. 

The following rehearsals/performances are cancelled and will be rescheduled for Spring 2022 with dates to be announced later: 

Cancelled Fall 2021 dates: 
October 6 & 7, 2021 – 10am – 12pm (Rehearsals)

November 9 & 10, 2021 – 10am (Performances) 

Due to this rescheduling, the education department is excited to offer a complimentary artists/musician virtual/in-person visit upon registration for the spring 2022 youth concerts.
