March 18, 2020: Please note the March 29 Kids Koncert is cancelled due to COVID-19.
Have you taken your little ones to the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s Kids’ Koncerts? The concerts are a great opportunity to successfully introduce children to the world of classical music. The Kids’ Koncerts are designed for children aged 4 – 11 years. The concerts are 60 minutes in length and feature the ENTIRE Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
Dressed in their concert-blacks, the musicians treat the Kids’ Koncerts as seriously as any other performance. There are additional performers on stage, helping to engage the young audience members. Each of the VSO Kids’ Koncerts is themed. Music is married to a script; the music makes the story come alive. I applaud the VSO for this brilliant approach to music education.
Instrument Fair: Begins one hour before each concert in the Orpheum lobby. Children can touch and play real orchestral instruments generously provided by Tom Lee Music. This hands-on opportunity is FREE for VSO Kids’ Koncert ticket holders.
