The Boulder Music Festival‘s Meet the Band Concerts give young children a chance to “meet” different sections of the orchestra. On Friday, August 3 beginning at 2 p.m., it’s the brass section’s turn. A small ensemble plays a short, informal musical program geared for young ears and young interests. Afterwards kids can meet the musicians and learn about their instruments. If the weather is good, come early or stay afterwards so the kids can explore the nifty playground and have a picnic in beautiful Chautauqua Park before the concert that takes place in the historic Auditorium. 900 Baseline Rd., Boulder (entrance to parking is across from Grant Pl. or park on Baseline Rd.), 303-665-0599.
