Children's Concerts

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. 

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.
