Our second project involves the children of Teller County. The Colorado Springs Philharmonic Orchestra presents an interactive concert for elementary school children each fall and spring which is designed to promote the education and appreciation of orchestral music.
Teachers select one concert, and the Guild purchases tickets for Teller County public and private school children in the fourth grade, including their chaperones and sponsors. Prior to each concert Guild members attend training and are available to serve as docents for each classroom. Docents go to a training session presented by Thomas Wilson, Conductor and Bernie Brink, Outreach and Education Coordinator of the Colorado Springs Philharmonic. The concerts are presented at Pikes Peak Center to the delight of our young attendees!
