DENVER — They might not be turning kids into the next Mozart or Beethoven, but Denver’s Playground Ensemble is teaching metro-area students the power of music and creativity.
The Playground Ensemble is a group of professional musicians, who are also faculty or alumni from the University of Denver’s school of music.
Conrad Kehn of the Playground Ensemble said the group’s young composer’s program is a way to teach area students about teamwork and music at the same time.
To learn more about participating in the young composers program, go to http://www.playgroundensemble.org/about.php.
Please let us know if there is a school in your neighborhood that could also benefit from this amazing program.
