Education is a cornerstone of Breckenridge Music. Our programs enhance the in-school arts curriculum and provide opportunities for people of all ages to deepen their understanding and appreciation of music. We reach approximately 4000 people throughout Summit, Lake and Park County and provide at least one event in each Summit County Public School every year. Thanks to the dedicated corps of volunteers and the generosity of local foundations and corporate partners, Breck Music proudly contributes to building a future generation of musicians and music enthusiasts.

MUSIC IN THE SCHOOLS
Music in the Schools supports arts education as a critical component of educational excellence for students, pre-K: 12, offering musical experiences from cultures throughout the world. The program focuses on three areas: assembly performances, interactive workshops and residencies with a teaching artist. In addition to inviting returning Festival Chamber Orchestra Musicians back during the school year, Breck Music partners with front-range arts organizations such as Swallow Hill, Think 360 Arts, Inside the Orchestra Colorado Children’s Chorale to enhance curriculum and support the development of important life skills.
Free summer performances, interactive presentations and workshops support the educational effect carrying it into the academic off-season and expanding the community’s access to music.
