The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra Children’s Concerts begin tomorrow, Friday, October 3 with KinderConcerts at the Ann Arbor District Library. There will be a 9:30a and a 10:30a session at the Downtown Branch. At the KinderConcert, the kids will learn about the Bass with Erin Zurbuchen and the piano with Kathryn Goodson.

KinderConcerts are a great introduction to music and instruments for toddlers and preschoolers. I love that they offer this free introduction to music.
There will be two additional sets of KinderConcerts for 2014-2015. Totally Tuba will be held in January and Tremendous Trumpet in May.
Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage – Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra Children’s Concert
The first Benard L. Mass Family Concert of the 2014-2015 season is Mozart’s Magnificent Voyage on Sunday, October 12 at 4p. The performance will combine the music of Mozart with a theatrical depiction of significant moments in his life. My daughter and I attended a similar performance last season, Beethoven Lives Upstairs and we loved the performance. Don’t forget to arrive early for children’s activities from 2:30-3:30p.
Each Family Concert lasts about an hour. They are perfect concerts for preschoolers and young elementary school students due to their short length. A2SO goes out of their way to relate the music to the kids. Tickets for the Family Concert are $12 for adults and $8 for children. They can be purchased on the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra’s website.
There are an additional two Family Concerts this year:
- December 6th: Sing-Along with Santa – 4p at Bethlehem United Church of Christ
- March 22: Disney in Concert – 4p at Michigan Theater
My daughter is most excited for the Disney in Concert performance. More details on these shows will be available closer to each event.
