Tiny Tots 2020-21 Season




Welcome to the new season!

Tiny Tots programs are typically 45-minute interactive concerts for kids six and under (and their adults!) to get truly “inside the orchestra.” Attendees are seated on the floor and encircled by our 30+ piece orchestra. Music selection, program design, and scripting are all designed to connect young children with music – physically, emotionally, and mentally. Inside the Orchestra is a family favorite in Colorado Parent Magazine and has been named in Westword’s “Best of Denver” in 2017 and 2020.

For the 2020-21 Season, we are going to be offering the entire season virtually, and, when possible, public performances will happen that are adjusted to meet public health standards and keep everyone safe. We have a fun and playful season planned! New online performances and content for the season will be released in June, September, and November 2020; and February, April, and June 2021. If you purchase a full-season package after any of those release dates, you will still have access to every program that has been released prior to your purchase. You will be able to access the full season of programs no matter when you purchase a full-season package.


Programming available in English, Spanish, and French.


Six Times Throughout the Year, You’ll Receive:

  • New interactive virtual performances on demand.
  • New online musical activities, exploration, and musical games.
  • A new activity book mailed to your child for screen-free fun.
  • A total of 6 unique program releases designed for kids 7 and under.

Children will:

  • Delight in unexpected musical experiences.
  • Learn about dozens of musical instruments.
  • See and respond to diverse musicians, dancers, singers, and artists from a variety of musical styles and art forms.
