In partnership with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, Musical Explorers connects children to rich and diverse musical communities as they build fundamental music skills through listening, singing, and moving to songs from all over the world. Featuring world-class artists and multiple types of activities, the program is designed to grow the musical horizons of its students. Regardless of where you teach, you can open the world to your students by bringing Musical Explorers into your classroom.
Musical Explorers is a semester-long project that introduces students to three diverse musical cultures represented by musicians from Denver and around the world, allowing students to experience and share cultures not referenced in a traditional curriculum. Free digital resources include lesson plans, audio recordings, instructional videos, and culminating interactive concert experiences that happen at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts.
The 2023-24 Musical Explorers season will serve over 3,000 2nd grade students from Denver Public Schools and beyond, including curriculum, digital resources, and in class visits from local and international featured artists. Musical Explorers launches on January 6, 2024 with a kickoff professional development session and culminates with shows on April 30 and May 1, 2024 at 10am and 11:45am. This program is offered for free to participating schools. Click the link below to register your school today. Registration closes September 15, 2023 for DPS schools.
