“The Arapahoe Philharmonic’s Play-In is a unique and incredible opportunity for music students in the area. My students and I had a wonderful experience working with knowledgeable and passionate AP musicians in sectionals and loved the community experience of performing together. I noticed my students came away with a new appreciation for orchestral music and an increased ability level just after this one day. Thank you to the AP musicians for your time and dedication to the future of music!” — Gateway High School Band Teacher
