Education is a cornerstone of the Breck Music Fest. Our programs enhance the in-school arts curriculum and provide opportunities for people of all ages to deepen their understanding and appreciation of music. Each year we reach upwards of 3000 people throughout Summit, Lake and Park Counties. Thanks to the dedicated corps of volunteers and the generosity of local foundations and corporate partners, the BMF 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, with classical and traditional musical experiences. The program focuses on three areas: assembly performances in the elementary schools, interactive workshops for middle and high school music students, and residencies with a teaching artist. By partnering with organizations such as Think 360 Arts, Inside the orchestra, Colorado Children’s Chorale, as well as with Festival Chamber Orchestra musicians, the BMF provides an opportunity for well-rounded artistic development.
Summer performances, interactive presentations and workshops support this educational effect carrying it into the academic off-season and expanding the community’s access to music. These opportunities include the week in partnership with Breckenridge Rec Center summer day camp for 5-12 year old children, the free family concert for all ages with the Festival Chamber Orchestra at the Riverwalk Center, and a music education course as part of Summit School District’s Summer Enrichment Program called Very Young Composers.
The BMF’s educational programs are made possible by a generous grant from The Summit Foundation.
Very Young Composers, in partnership with the Summit School District’s Summer Enrichment Courses is sponsored by Breckenridge Grand Vacations and BGV Gives.
Leadville programs are made possible by a generous grant from Climax Molybdenum
