Every Spring the Denver Concert Band holds a musical instrument performance competition among high school seniors. Applicants prepare a musical piece to perform. The chosen winner plays a solo with the Denver Concert Band at its Spring concert and receives a scholarship for $2,000. A reception in the student's honor is held after the concert. Many of the Band's past scholarship winners have gone on to play music in college and even professionally. This program has been in existence since 1977.
For our 2019-2020 season, our Young Artist Scholarship winner was oboe soloist Benjamin Segall from Denver School of the Arts. His performance of Variations on A Theme by Glinka/Rimsky-Korsakov earned him a $3000 scholarship to be applied toward his college education.

The Show & Tell Band is a small group of Denver Concert Band members who go to elementary schools to provide an educational music program for young students. They perform fun and popular songs, teach the children about the different band instruments, and even let one young audience member conduct the group.
