As an educator for 12 years, I have never seen a children’s concert performed as appropriately as the one you did for us… Thank you again, and I only hope that we can go again and again.

At the Symphony I learned that music talks without saying a word!

Thank you for such a wonderful program and concert experience! My class loved the performance, and we appreciate how child-friendly your conductor and musicians are! We’re looking forward to next year’s curriculum and concert!!!

KinderKonzerts brings 4,000 students in grades K–2 and their teachers to the Berger Performing Arts Center for performances by the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. These culturally diverse, 45-minute concerts utilize a variety of orchestral music to introduce students to the instruments and musicians of the orchestra, as well as musical concepts that connect to educational themes. Nearly 40 public, private, parochial and home school groups take part in TSO KinderKonzerts each year, with schools traveling from as far away as Oracle, Rio Rico, and Nogales.
