We Don’t Kid Around

Exposure to the world of classical music gives kids a proven edge in both scholastic and intellectual development. So to help them get a strong start, we offer the following programs…

Free for Kids

“Free for Kids” in Colorado Springs offers young audiences an invitation to hear the Philharmonic perform live, in a true concert setting. Admission for ages 7 to 17 is complimentary, and made possible, in part, by the support of GE Johnson Foundation and annual gifts from other generous donors. Learn More


Philharmonic Kids

This interactive concert series—supported by Philharmonic musicians along with trained classroom docents—focuses on creative discovery and the cultivation of a richer, more fulfilling life through exposure to the arts. “Philharmonic Kids” programs are available to all students in our community, and all studies are reinforced with supplemental curricula, classroom activities, and ancillary teaching materials.

Conductor in the Classroom

“Conductor in the Classroom” offers local school orchestras and bands the rare opportunity to learn under the baton of Music Director Josep Caballé-Domenech, or Associate Conductor Thomas Wilson, in a live school-day rehearsal. Both conductors work with young players, sharing their insights into the processes and joys of performing and staging great music. Want to teach your aspiring young musicians a lesson they’ll never forget? Inquire today for participation in our “Conductor in the Classroom” project,
