Related: Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, KinderConcerts

The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra in conjunction with the Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and the Dexter District Libraries co-host a series of fun, interactive KinderConcerts. KinderConcerts are free, 30-minute concerts designed especially for children 2-6 years old.

Members of your A2SO join our child movement expert and piano collaborationist for a guided introduction to the instruments of the orchestra. Introduce even the youngest listeners to classical music by dancing a tango and waving colorful scarves with your little ones at your local library. This fun, active learning environment allows children the opportunity to enjoy music while encouraging learning and creativity.

Performances are at 9:30 and 10:30 am at the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti District Libraries and at 10:00 am at the Dexter District Library. Doors open 10 minutes prior to each performance.
