Show and Tell Family Event

The Playground would like to invite you to our second annual free interactive youth-focused event with music, videos, instrument demos, soundpainting, and more!

We do so much work with young people and sometimes we forget to tell you. In an average season The Playground holds over 100 K-12 events including Young Composers Playground classes and concerts, K-12 Soundpaintings, masterclasses, and coachings. These programs serve more than 3,000 young people across the Denver Metro area, Breckenridge, Vail, Longmont, and in the summer of 2018, Nebraska. We are responsible for the creation and performance of over 50 new chamber works, written by young people in our programs.

This night will feature an an opportunity for young people and audiences to play some of the unique self-built instruments we use in these events, hear works by some young composers in Colorado, and participate in a Soundpainting demonstration.

This evening is also a thank you to all of the classroom teachers, teaching artists, donors, and partners that make our outreach programs such a success.

Bring your family for a unique night of visual and auditory expression unlike anything else you’ll find in Denver.

This show is dedicated to Steve Gordon, one of our education team who passed away on April 30, 2018. Steve was an artist, musician, instrument builder, and gentle soul who was an important part of our outreach.
