Elementary Programming

Building our next generation by inspiring through childhood education.

The BPO is proud to present educational programming accessible to all students through live concerts, in-school programs, and digital resources. Each year we work to ensure that our programs introduce students to the best orchestral repertoire, focus on music learning concepts being taught in the school classroom, encourage active participation through interactive program elements, and provide an engaging and memorable experience.
