Boise Phil’s Community Engagement Program is a series of initiatives that take music out of the concert hall and into our communities, providing opportunities to engage with the artists and the music in deeper, more meaningful ways while helping to ensure greater access to quality music experiences.


This season, Boise Phil features family-friendly community concerts that reflect the culture, heritage and vibrancy of our community. Concerts are open to anyone who would like to attend and will be held at various locations throughout Treasure Valley.
