Boise Phil has created a robust educational program that is designed to support sequential music education in the classroom.
Music is core to a well-rounded education and the Boise Phil believes in providing access to high-quality learning to all students across Idaho. That’s why all Boise Phil education programs are free. In addition to elementary school curriculum and school concerts, Boise Phil musicians developed an online library of video resources to support teachers in the classroom as well as in-classroom visits.

Our Boise Phil curriculum program establishes a foundation for listening to and appreciating music for students in grades 3 – 5. Inspired by the musical storytelling of Sergei Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf”, this ten-week program that integrates animation with music to promote music literacy – connecting music and the imagination.
School Concerts are a flagship event in the Boise Phil’s season. Our School Concerts are live concert performances designed for elementary students. Over the last two decades, they have touched the lives of nearly every young person who has grown up in the Treasure Valley, and are an annual tradition for the educators who bring students to the concert halls. These free concerts are held in person in the Treasure Valley area and serve elementary students from Boise, West Ada, Nampa, Caldwell, and Vallivue School Districts and beyond.
This season’s school concert is a culmination of learning from the Boise Phil’s classroom curriculum. Programming for the 23-24 school concert coming soon!
Our fantastic Boise Phil chamber ensembles and conductors visit schools throughout the treasure valley every year and work with student musicians. Sign up today to have the Boise Phil visit your school. *We will try to accommodate as many requests as our schedule allows*
