Ann Arbor Symphony Presents KinderConcerts' FABULOUS FLUTE WITH PENNY FISCHER, Now thru 5/12

The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra in conjunction with the Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and the Dexter District Libraries present KinderConcerts: fun, interactive and free, 30-minute concerts designed especially for children 2-5 years old. Members of your A2SO join a 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.
