ABOUT DISCOVERY CONCERT 2018
Discovery Concert 2018 takes students in grades 3-6 on a journey to explore orchestral music in a fun, interactive format featuring nationally-acclaimed Music Director Michael Butterman.
This year's Reach for the Stars program offers an exciting space exploration theme in honor of NASA’s – and the Boulder Phil’s – 60th anniversary. The program explores concepts of history, courage and innovation, while featuring some of the very best and most engaging orchestral music ever written! The 50-minute multimedia concert is presented at the historic Macky Auditorium on the CU campus.

ADD AN IN-SCHOOL VISIT
Hosting a Boulder Phil Brass Quintet or String Quartet during the fall semester at your school brings instrumental music alive for your students! This “up-close and personal” experience highlights instrument families, composers and plenty of time for student questions. We also offer limited in-school engagements with Maestro Butterman.
The cost per student to participate in ALL aspects of the program is just $5, and teachers and chaperones attend free of charge. Schools are responsible for transportation. Financial assistance is available.

What teachers are saying about Discovery Concerts…
“The music was superb. Maestro Butterman is a hit with my kids every year.”
“The Discovery Concerts are a wonderful way to give a diverse group of students an opportunity to see a professional orchestra, to visit a large university, and, to be inspired to enjoy, perform, and compose classical music. We hope to bring both our third and fourth graders (approximately 200 students) next year!”
“This was a wonderful experience!!!”
