At the Event
The rehearsal is approximately 2.5 hours long, including a 15-20 minute break.
If you’re bringing your students in a school bus, then follow the directions in our welcome packet with your materials. A parking map is included.
If you’re driving your students in a car or van, we recommend parking in the adjacent Denver Performing Arts Complex parking garage.
Light Rail is another great way to get here! Take the D, F, or H line to the Theatre District/Convention Center stop. Walk two blocks west on 14th Street (towards Curtis Street) to the Denver Performing Arts Complex and turn left into the complex. Boettcher Concert Hall is located at the southwest end.
We prefer students arrive AT LEAST 30 minutes prior to the rehearsal. This will allow time for staff to explain audience expectations to the students, restroom breaks, and time to be seated. Please note: our rehearsals start on time!
Seating is based on the sizes of all the groups attending. For our rehearsals, it is important to us that your students can hear and see the conductor, so we try to seat groups with that in mind. However, this also means the conductor and musicians may be able to hear your students! Please encourage them to be quiet. Please also indicate on your reservation form if you will need accessible seating for any of your students.
If you have indicated on your reservation form that you’re bringing lunches, the usher will be able to direct you to where your lunches will be stored. Students are not permitted to bring their lunch bags or drinks into the concert hall. If you did not sign up to store your lunches and/or eat lunch at the hall, Please leave your lunches on the bus during the concert.
Yes. There is a large, grassy park in between the Boettcher Concert Hall and Speer called Sculpture Park. You’re welcome to eat and run around there. Eating is not permitted inside Boettcher Concert Hall.
Once your group arrives, we prefer to seat your groups before any students are taken to the restroom. Arriving at least 30 minutes prior to the rehearsal will give your students enough time to visit the restroom. They will also be a 15 to 20 minute break during the rehearsal.
We prefer to keep disruptions to the rehearsal to a minimum, but you may allow students to use the restroom during the rehearsal if they cannot wait for the break. Students must go to the restroom and return to their seat, however, roaming during the rehearsal is not permitted.
Students are allowed to take pictures and short videos on their phones. However, they must turn off all sounds and the flash on their phones.
The musicians love to hear back from inspired guests! Feel free to send artwork or comments to Colorado Symphony Education at 1000 14th Street, #15 Denver, CO 80202. We will also send out a survey following the concert, so there will be another place to add your thoughts as an educator. If parents or other teachers have any comments or suggestions, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we cancel the rehearsal, we will notify you via e-mail and/or phone call right away. Please make sure that you include your number and e-mail address in the representative contact information on the reservation form. Also, we will post a cancellation on the MusiCurious Facebook page as soon as a decision is made.
If your school or district cancels, but we have not cancelled the concert, please email email@example.com and you will be contacted following the concert to let you know the options for rescheduling.
