Music & Truffles – Classical Music for Young People (and adults too!)

Give your children their first taste of classical music.
Join us as Music & Truffles celebrates its 12th birthday with an inspiring season of fresh, interactive music events sure to delight the young and the young at heart. Our unique one hour format features one orchestra, two superb string quartets, two famed pianists, and a very special show featuring four guitarists from Dublin!

Music & Truffles is designed for young people ages 6 to 15, but it is also a great series for adults just starting to explore the mysteries and ecstasies of classical music – you are not required to bring a young person, and you will get a truffle anyway!

“I don’t believe there is another series anywhere which presents such outstanding artists in programs specially designed for young people, at such a bargain price.”

- Anton Kuerti, artistic director

About Our Format

These programs are shorter versions of the Concert Series, which take place later that day. We use the same world renowned artists to perform shorter pieces or movements of larger ones. The artist, host or both will help bring the music to life by discussing and illustrating it, and stimulating the youngsters' imagination and appreciation with entertaining, interactive comments.

Many children and adults who have attended these series have gone on to discover their own musical abilities. Don’t miss your opportunity for a unique classical music experience.
