Very First Concerts: The Art of Listening

Monday, January 21, 11am & 12pm

San Francisco Chamber Orchestra and Crowden Music Center encourage audiences to get up and dance in Very First Concerts, a classical series designed with the youngest listeners in mind.

Each concert features a central theme, short selections, tumbling mats for fidgety toddlers, and hands-on musical activities geared toward families with young children (infants to 7 year-olds).

On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the theme is "The Art of Listening!" Our ears don't close, and we hear things all day and all night. But when do we really listen? And what happens when we do? Join us in a voyage of discovery into the Land of Listen, where wonderful things can happen if you're really quiet!

Very First Concerts are FREE to the public. Repeat performances at 11am and 12pm.


Presented by Crowden Music Center.
