 Music comes alive in KinderConcerts – free 30-minute concerts designed especially for children 2- to 5-years old. No worries about wiggly tots sitting still for a concert – they’ll dance and move while listening to the music.  Then they’ll be mesmerized by hearing a story being told with musical accompaniment.  Members of the A2SO join child movement expert Gari Stein and pianist Kathryn Goodson for a guided introduction to the instruments of the orchestra.  Parents, grandparents, teachers, and day care leaders can introduce classical music to even the youngest listeners at your local libraries.
