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.
