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.
