Young Artist Scholarship & Concert
The Denver Concert Band holds a yearly competition to encourage high school seniors to continue music performance. The Young Artist winner receives a scholarship, and in the final formal concert of the year, the artist performs a solo piece accompanied by the band.
Winners are selected by audition. For this year:
Piano-accompanied CDs or digital files with application form must be submitted by March 11, 2024
Finalists will be judged in a live audition on March 24, 2024
Winner will perform as a soloist and receive their scholarship on Apr 28, 2024
Attention Directors and Private Instructors: All solos submitted must have a published band accompaniment for the DCB to purchase. Please help your students with this research.
Show & Tell Band
The Show and Tell Band is a special DCB community outreach program. Since 1992, this smaller ensemble has traveled to Colorado elementary schools to perform an interactive music program. The musicians demonstrate their instruments and play a fun-filled concert, with the mission of sparking an interest in music and wind instruments.
Features of a Show and Tell Band Concert include:
Demonstrations of individual instruments (flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon, trumpet, french horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, percussion)
Explanation of how vibration creates sound and how an instrument works
Demonstration of instruments playing together in concert
Wide variety of fun music (includes classical and Disney)
Fast-paced 45 minute show
A chance for kids to direct the band at the end of the concert!
Typically two concerts a month are scheduled. A reduced rate may be available at times for those with tight budgets and/or in lower income areas, thanks to contributions from “Friends of the DCB” and grants to the Show and Tell Band.
