All proceeds bring Inside the Orchestra programs to children with the highest need.
Inside the Orchestra programs are an experience like no other. Children get to discover what it is to be truly "inside the orchestra" as they are seated on the floor and surrounded by our professional musicians. They are encouraged to respond to different elements of the music, from thinking about how music makes them feel to getting on their feet and moving. They are treated to up-close-and-personal demos by various instruments, introduced to musical concepts, emotional understanding of the arts, and artistic expression. The music selection, design, and scripting of Inside the Orchestra programs are geared to connect young children with music – physically, emotionally, and mentally.
Every program includes guest performers from some of our cultural partner organizations like Central City Opera, Hannah Kahn Dance Company, Kim Robards Dance, and Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
In the last school year alone, Inside the Orchestra served more than 22,000 children and caregivers, most of whom had never experienced live orchestra music before. The vast majority of our young audience members come from under-served communities. Proceeds from this event support the following:
Inside the Orchestra for Schools - Inside the Orchestra for Schools is an interactive 50-minute program geared toward students in K-8th grade. We take a 14-16 piece interactive orchestra program into high-need schools, along with in-class follow-up programs and lesson plans. Available in English and bilingual formats. Our school program is provided at no charge to the cash-strapped schools we serve.
Tiny Tots - Tiny Tots gets children truly “inside the orchestra” by seating the audience on the floor and surrounding them with our 30+ piece professional orchestra. More than half of our Tiny Tots attendees are on a need-based discount or full scholarship.
