The Boise Philharmonic Orchestra welcomes nearly 12,000 children for a 50-minute journey through the symphony and beyond!
Boise Philharmonic Children’s Concerts are an annual event which have been a huge success and an artistic enrichment opportunity for over a decade. Each year the concerts are designed to correlate with standard Idaho curriculum through a collective effort by the school districts’ superintendents, educators, and the Boise Philharmonic Association.
- Concerts are organized through the schools.
- Teachers of each attending classroom get supplementary classroom materials in advance to help prepare for the concert experience.
- Students learn about instrument families and sounds, concert etiquette, composers, orchestral repertoire, and how music and sound ties into their daily lives and studies.
Each year nearly 12,000 children attend these exciting orchestral performances. For many students, this event is a first opportunity to hear live symphonic music.
Thanks to our generous sponsors and gifts from donors like you, these performances are free to local school children.
