Discovery Concerts: Build It! @ Macky Auditorium

About Discovery Concert 2019

Music and architecture have many things in common – rhythm, texture, harmony, proportion, dynamics – and composers and architects throughout the ages have often approached their work in similar ways. Join us for the 2019 Discovery Concert as the Boulder Philharmonic and special guests explore the intersection between sounds and structures, featuring orchestral works by Bach, Britten, Mussorgsky, Ives, and more. Designed for students in grades 3-6, this program includes a 50-minute concert at Macky Auditorium, an optional 45-minute in-school visit with a chamber music ensemble, and a bilingual listening and learning guide for teachers.

Thursday, February 28, 2019 – 2 concerts at 10 AM & 11:30 AM
Friday, March 1, 2019 – 2 concerts at 10 AM & 11:30 AM
