Michael Butterman inschool visitADD 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.

Students attend the Discovery Concert for just $5, and teachers and chaperones attend free of charge. In-school chamber music visits with our professional musicians are $100 per visit. All curriculum materials are included with registration, and schools are responsible for transportation arrangements. Limited financial assistance is available, please inquire.

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!!!”
