All of us at the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra are passionate about educating our children and being involved in our communities. We offer a variety of programs designed for families, teachers and students that reach beyond the concert hall. We offer KinderConcerts and Instrument Petting Zoos for our youngest audience members. Classroom concerts, conductor visits, sectionals and side-by-sides inspire and engage school-age kids. And open rehearsals and concerts in the community and at Farmers Markets entertain music-lovers of all ages. These programs engage more than 30,000 people each year, igniting sparks of curiosity about music that lead to transforming experiences.
