Press Release: Winter Tiny Tots Begins February 13th

Tiny Tots: Immersive Orchestra Concerts for Children


Denver, CO — October 15, 2018 —Inside the Orchestra will be bringing its popular Tiny Tots program to locations all around the Denver metro area this winter, with programming running from February 13th until March 2nd. Tiny Tots gets children truly “inside the orchestra” by seating the audience on the floor and surrounding them with our 30+ piece professional orchestra. Children are encouraged to respond to different elements of the music, from thinking about how music makes them feel to getting on their feet and moving.  Inside the Orchestra will present Tiny Tots along with guest artists Alton Williams, Kim Robards Dance  and Denver Center for the Performing Arts. All Tiny Tots programs include an instrument petting zoo and DIY instrument making stations to let kids get hands-on experience with instruments themselves.

This winter take a musical walk through the four seasons with the orchestra. You’ll get to stomp along like thunder with the big bass drum, grow and get taller like the rising sun during music that sounds like sunrise on autumn trees, and sing and dance along as the orchestra plays around you. The music includes orchestral classics, children’s singalong favorites, and modern pop songs.

Designed for children six and under, Tiny Tots is a 45-minute program that gives young ones the chance to interact with the conductor and the musicians and learn about the instruments in the process. Children are encouraged to respond to different elements of the music, from thinking about how music makes them feel to getting on their feet and moving. They are treated to up-close-and-personal demos by various instruments, introduced to musical concepts, emotional understanding of the arts, and artistic expression. The music selection, design, and scripting of Tiny Tots is geared to connect very young children with music – physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Tiny Tots was named in Denver Westword’s “Best of Denver” 2017. The experience is one-of-a-kind!


About Inside the Orchestra

Inside the Orchestra is a local nonprofit organization that brings orchestra music to young children in the greater Denver metropolitan community, cultivating music appreciation and enhancing their education through engaging first-hand experiences. Inside the Orchestra is committed to increasing equity among metro Denver’s communities by reducing barriers to the performing arts and ensuring that orchestra music is accessible, approachable, and enjoyable for all children.  By offering programs at little to no cost to the schools and families with the highest need, all children can participate regardless of any socio-economic boundaries. Each year, Inside the Orchestra brings music to over 20,000 children and adults through two main programs – Inside the Orchestra for Schools, and Tiny Tots. Inside the Orchestra for Schools is an immersive, interactive music program geared toward students in the K -8th grades. Children are seated inside a 14-16-piece orchestra. Conductors and/or teaching artists act as tour guides and educators throughout the program, teaching the kids about the music and instruments as the orchestra performs around them. The kids are treated to up-close-and-personal demos by the strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion. Scripting is designed to not only introduce music concepts but to tie to the curriculum that children are studying in other subjects. Inside the Orchestra for Schools has English and bilingual programs available. Every Inside the Orchestra for Schools program includes guest performers from cultural partner organizations, access to in-school curriculum, and follow-up programs.
