CMS Kids

Help Wanted: Composer
Sunday, November 18, 2018, 3:00 PM at Rose Studio



Program curated for ages 3-6

Explore the up-close and friendly world of chamber music in the intimate Rose Studio, curated for ages 3-6. Each CMS Kids program is a Relaxed Performance, an inclusive concert experience adapted for neurodiverse audiences, including children with autism or other special needs. These performances are presented in a judgment-free environment, and are less formal and more supportive of sensory, communication, movement, and learning needs.

Seeking one person to explain every feeling of every human who has ever lived. These emotions must be made to be understood by every person of every age, from every part of the whole world. Oh -- one other thing -- the explanation should only use sound! No words or pictures please! Only the most brilliant composers need apply. Join host Rami Vamos and CMS artists for an interactive exploration of how composers turn emotions into musical works of art.
