Inside the Orchestra for Schools


In-School Programming for Metro Denver Schools

Find the right program and resource for you. Questions? Contact us at info@insidetheorchestra.org.

The repertoire and approach to learning that Inside the Orchestra maintains are designed to support and enhance the school curricula. All of our programming is interactive and carefully designed for the age and stage of your students.


Pop-Up Recess Programs: Bring music to recess with our interactive pop-up trio programs. These 20-25 minute programs are designed to get kids moving, listening, dancing, and pretending with ensembles. Led by a musician who will introduce each piece, these programs are a great way for kids to experience live music safely and in new and fun ways.

Submit an interest form for your school.


In-School Small Ensembles: Students will interact with a teaching artist and musicians as they are guided to move and react to the music, answer questions and prompts about what they’re hearing, and think creatively and critically about the composers and the music. Program options include single or multi-visit options, adaptable based on public health guidelines and needs of the school.

Submit an interest form for your school.


Full-Scale in-school assemblies: A 14-16 piece professional orchestra experience for K-8th grade. The audience is seated on the floor and surrounded by professional musicians. The conductor faces the students and engages them throughout the performance, asking questions and teaching them about the music as it is playing around them. Students are treated to up-close-and-personal demos by the strings, woodwinds, horns and percussion. Scripting is designed to not only introduce musical concepts but to tie to curriculum that children are studying in other subjects.

Currently on pause due to COVID-19. Stay tuned for updates.
