Children's Discovery Concert

Friday, February 25, 2022, 11 a.m.

Denver First Church of the Nazarene

3800 E. Hampden Avenue, Cherry Hills Village, CO 80113

Children: $5

Adults: $15

This concert is geared toward students in grades 3 through 5, though the program is sure to be enjoyed by slightly younger and older students as well.

Two notorious “Pirates” have arrived at the show competing to find the buried treasure on their maps. They tell of their worldly adventurers and the musical selections we hear reveal clues about where the treasure can be found.

The event normally starts at 10:30 a.m. with instrument demonstrations around the hall. Once students are checked in and seated, they are greeted by adult orchestra players who will tell the students about their instruments and demonstrate how to play them. Some AP members allow the students to try out the instruments themselves! Students are also able to visit the percussion section and learn how to conduct. A Teacher’s Guide is provided as a tool for teachers to use with students before arriving on concert day. It connects the music with hands-on activities to Language Arts, Social Studies, Art and other subjects.

Schools and educational groups will receive priority, reserved seating.  Seating is assigned in order of reservation receipt and payment. Click the button above to register! 

The public may purchase tickets at a cost of $5 per student and $15 teacher/adult. Please contact the Arapahoe Philharmonic office at 303-781-1892 or email if your school needs a scholarship.

The Arapahoe Philharmonic has a deep commitment to music education, and educating our children and youth is an integral part of our mission. Colorado State Music Standards 3 (Theory of Music) and 4 (Aesthetic Valuation of Music) will be the educational focus of the concert. We believe the Arapahoe Philharmonic has the most hands-on children’s concert in the south Denver metro area.
