BSO to Host Music Box Series at The Music Center at Strathmore, Begin. 4/5

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) has expanded its popular Music Box Series for infants and toddlers age six months to three years to include six concerts at The Music Center at Strathmore in Bethesda, Md. Concerts are offered at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. on April 5, May 3, and June 7, 2014. Tickets for the Music Box Series at Strathmore are $15 for children and $15 for adults. Please see below for calendar and ticket information.

Hosted by actress, dancer and storyteller Maria Broom, the Music Box Series gives young children the chance to explore music through interactive performances. Each 30 minute concert promotes musical, motor and language development through bouncing, clapping, listening, and singing. The concerts feature a small ensemble of BSO musicians performing classical, jazz and children's songs that provide social and educational experiences for both children and their families. Each performance also features pre-concert activities hosted 30 minutes prior to the show by the BSO and partner organization Ready at Five, a non-profit that works to ensure that all Maryland children are ready to learn by age five. The wide range of pre-concert activities will encourage literacy, creative play and musical skills. Music Box programs take place in the lobbies at The Music Center at Strathmore
