As part of our youth outreach, the Arapahoe Philharmonic directs sectionals for the honor orchestras of the Continental League, Cherry Creek School District (middle schools) and Aurora Public Schools. These sectionals help to engage and mentor high school students from Arapahoe and Douglas Counties. AP players coach the students and provide advanced technical and musical support. This allows for a more individualized educational process.
The impact of these sectionals reaches far beyond the one concert. Students involved share new techniques with their school orchestras and build a better orchestra within their own schools. They remember the Arapahoe Philharmonic, bring their friends to our concerts, and are ultimately the foundation for future players and audience members.
