Elementary Programming


Creating opportunities for life-long music learning and appreciation.

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.

All patrons over the age of 12 who attend BPO performances at Kleinhans Music Hall will be required to provide proof of vaccination and identification at every performance. Children age 12 and under must show proof of a recent negative test for COVID-19. Proof of vaccination will also be accepted for children ages 5-11.
