We accompany our kids during outings involving roller coasters, ski mountains and shopping malls...but, how about classical music?
The New Haven Symphony Orchestra's unique programs reach more than 30,000 kids each year.
"Numerous studies prove time and time again that music is singular in it's ability to influence brain development in children. I think this research is best summerized through a quote by Nietzsche: Without music, life would be a mistake," says NHSO's Education Director Laura Adam. "The NHSO's mission is to inspire and delight through music education and we have created life-long learning opportunities that encourage children, families, and adults to engage with classical music in ways that honor the past and are relevant to their present."
The KidTix program enables a child, age 6 to 17, to attend a performance for free with an adult who has purchased a ticket.
Additionally, Young People's Concerts routinely take place at historic Woolsey Hall.
An upcoming performance in the free Family Concert Series, Carnival of the Animals, is being held Saturday, February 28th at the Davis Street School in New Haven.
