[Grades K-2; Ages 4-7]
These concerts are a great "first experience" to live orchestral music and the Grand Rapids Symphony. They are developed to include a connection to classic children's literature, and often incorporate other arts mediums through visual arts, actors, and collaborations with other organizations, such as the Grand Rapids Ballet. Audience participation and involvement during these performances not only reinforce learning happening in the home and classroom, but ensure that children remain engaged throughout the performance.
