Our musicians have created educational programs centered around different pieces performed by Sphere Ensemble. Each program video is approximately 15 minutes in length and includes grade level recommendations. Programs include a brief historical/contextual educational discussion and a performance video by Sphere Ensemble. These programs are free for you to use with your classes by completing the brief registration form below.
Teacher Handbook: Each program is accompanied by a PDF packet of additional supporting documents. These handbooks include the Colorado State Music Standard covered by the program, a lesson plan suggestion, more information on the composers, and further discussion topics.
Pause Symbols: Some videos contain occasional pause symbols. These are recommended places for teachers to pause the video for optional further discussion with their class should they desire.
These videos are made to be used on their own or facilitated by a live Sphere Ensemble Musician. If you wish to bring in a live Sphere Ensemble Musician to facilitate the program/presentation, please indicate this on your registration form.

Milonga del Ángel: Argentine Tango and Astor Piazzolla
