The Boulder Philharmonic's Discovery Concerts take students in grades 3-6 on a journey to explore orchestral music in a fun, interactive format featuring nationally-acclaimed Music Director Michael Butterman. Students attend a 50-minute performance during the school day designed to support and coordinate with their core curriculum. Previous Discovery Concerts have linked stories and legends to music and presented how music can lend itself to narrative, showed how music can express both positive and negative emotions, and linked music and visual art to help make music’s abstract nature more tangible and understandable. Teachers are provided curriculum guides, lesson plans and a CD of repertoire to help prepare their students for the experience. Many students also receive a visit from Michael Butterman or one of our chamber ensembles in preparation for the concert. Our goal is to inspire students to begin instrumental study through the public schools, which studies show lead to improved academic performance in other areas as well.
If you’ve attended a Boulder Phil concert at Macky lately, you know firsthand just how wonderful the orchestra’s performances have been. With some of the region’s best professional musicians on the roster, and world-class guest artists like the Takács Quartet, Christopher Taylor and Sarah Chang taking the stage, the Boulder Phil is truly a cultural asset to the community. But Michael Butterman knows we can do even more. Building on the strong artistic foundations that he has fostered with the orchestra, Michael sees a very exciting future for the Boulder Phil. Increasing the number of Masterworks concerts, incorporating rich multimedia presentations, building the orchestra’s technical and artistic capacity, engaging top performers that audiences long to see on the Macky stage…these are just a few of the ways in which your contribution to the Artistry Fund will help Michael to more fully realize his artistic vision for the orchestra in the coming years.
