Program curated for ages 3-6

Explore the up-close and friendly world of chamber music in the intimate Rose Studio.

When legendary violinist Niccolò Paganini took the stage, audiences believed some form of magic must help him to play so well. The music he wrote, and the way he played violin forever changed the musical world. How did he do it? Join host Rami Vamos and CMS artists for an interactive exploration of tempo, pitch, and articulation. Find out if the magic of Paganini can turn you into a musical virtuoso too!
