Wow, that’s a really big mute!

The Discovery Concert brings the excitement of live orchestral music to students as they begin their own instrumental study at school.

Students attend an interactive 50�minute performance during the school day designed to enrich their core music curriculum.

Discovery Concerts often feature a young soloist or composer to inspire students’ own musical studies

Each year, the Discovery Concert explores a different theme and makes cross�disciplinary links that correlate with students’ other classroom subjects.

Students write poems and create artwork that is inspired by listening to the music

Interpretive student artwork is often featured onstage

Discovery Concert 2015

This year’s concert theme is “Tears, Cheers and Fears” which explores how music can express a wide range of emotions.

Teachers and students tell us that the Discovery Concert is “the best field trip of the year!�

What teachers are saying about Discovery Concerts… “Mr. Butterman's energetic spirit and great sense of humor really make the concert come alive.” “Children who have never attended a classical concert feel a sense of familiarity and accessibility that they would not have felt without this experience.” “Incredible interaction of the conductor with the children. I also loved the improvisation element. Very successful!”

Thanks to visionary funding from the Noris Foundation, the Discovery Concert program is expanding in 2015�2016!

• Discovery Concert April 2015

We’re doubling the number of Discovery Concerts this year, and adding new programs for older students!

More education initiatives: • Side‐by‐side youth concerts • In‐school music mentors • $5 student tickets to Boulder Phil Masterworks concerts

Help us fill every seat in Macky with exuberant kids ready to experience the magic!
