KinderKonzerts

Interactive concerts that share the fun & fundamentals of symphony music

These early-age performances are scaled to engage preK-3rd grade students while providing an introductory overview of orchestral instruments and music. Storytelling themes are often used to sustain the interest and attention of this young audience throughout these 35-40 minute performances. KinderKonzerts are held at various locations throughout Maine and New Hampshire and are performed more than 50 times per season.

If you are interested in hosting a KinderKonzert at your school please fill out our request form here.
