A2SO KinderConcerts Return for 2023-2024 Season

Disclosure: Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra was an Ann Arbor with Kids sponsor. All opinions are our own.

Each year the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra holds a series of KinderConcerts at local libraries. A2SO KinderConcerts introduce kids age 0-5 to the different instruments in the symphony with a combination of music and motion. Concerts were held in September 2023. The January KinderConcerts were recently announced. There are typically also KinderConcerts held in May.

About the A2SO KinderConcerts

Learn more about the KinderConcerts with excerpts from their 2018 press release:

Each year, more than 25,000 kids experience the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra in their schools, libraries and communities. Through these interactions they grow their musical curiosity, they grow their listening skills, and they grow their love of music. … KinderConcerts happen. .. at the Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Dexter and Ypsilanti libraries. They introduce kids age 0-5 to the different instruments in the symphony with a combination of music and motion. Each session features music & movement specialist Gari Stein, pianist Kathryn Goodson and a featured musician from the orchestra!

Our Experiences with A2SO KinderConcerts

My daughter and I attended a few KinderConcerts when she was a toddler and preschooler. It was quite a few years ago as she is now in high school. She loved listening to the different instruments and dancing with Gari Stein.

In spring 2019, I returned to a KinderConcert to experience it again. All of the kids were having a great time learning about the instruments and dancing to the music.

Other A2SO Education Programs

My daughter’s class has attended an A2SO Link Up youth concert in 4th and 5th grade. She loved getting to play her recorder with the symphony as a fourth grader. The program is returning for the 2022-2023 year (March 21). The Music in the Middle program also returns for grades 6-9 with a November 10 concert.

A2SO Orchestra Moves Link Up Concert

My daughter loves their Instrument Petting Zoo. She always wants to try all of the instruments, even the clarinet which she plays at school.
