Chamber Music Beginnings

Music comes to life in innovative educational programs for students grades 3-5!

Music and culture come to life in this series of entertaining, interactive concerts. Students learn about the elements of music – melody, rhythm, form, artistry, and expression – first hand from our musicians and teaching artists.

Only $5 per student for each concert includes:

  • Concert admission to live, interactive performances featuring world-class professional musicians
  • In-class activities and instruction led by experienced teaching artists in preparation for each concert
  • CDs and teacher guides provided in advance of each performance
