Boise Contemporary Theater and Boise Phil Collaboration Culminates in Free Concert

Boise Contemporary Theater (BCT) and the Boise Phil have teamed up to bring a free concert to the Treasure Valley on March 18, 2023, at 2:00 pm at the Morrison Center. The concert is free, but tickets are required and are limited to 6 per person.

Jennifer Stockwell-Fortner, BCT education Director, relished the opportunity to collaborate with another professional Boise arts organization, given that their missions closely align. 

“Music and theater go hand in hand, and we were thrilled to be asked to bring the characters of Sound and Silence to life in this fun and free all-ages concert. Stories can be told in so many different ways and this new experience of storytelling with the beloved Boise Philharmonic is a treat,” Stockwell-Fortner said. “I’m so excited to be directing the story portion of this production and look forward to more collaborations in the future.”

Concert selections will include songs that may be familiar from movies like “E.T.” and cartoons such as “Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.” 

BCT’s education program also fosters early arts appreciation, making the collaboration with the Boise Phil a perfect fit, added Stockwell-Fortner. The Boise Phil’s pilot music education program Sonic Boom!, a free ten-week curriculum teaches Idaho elementary students the foundations of listening to and appreciating music.

“We believe that all students deserve access to high-quality musical experiences,” said Laura Reynolds, Boise Phil Executive Director.
