Tiny Tots gets children truly “inside the orchestra” by seating the audience on the floor and surrounding them with our 30+ piece professional orchestra.
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. Children are also encouraged to take a closer look at the instruments and ask questions of the musicians after the concert has concluded. Every Tiny Tots event includes guest performers from some of our cultural partner organizations.
Tiny Tots was named in Denver Westword’s “Best of Denver“. The experience is one-of-a-kind!
Repertoire, guest artists, and interactive elements change every series. Come fall, winter, and spring and see a new program every time.
Please note: History Colorado has changed its policy and is no longer offering complimentary museum admission to Tiny Tots attendees. They are, however, offering a flat discounted rate of $5/person for anyone over the age of 4. Children 4 and under are free. You do NOT have to purchase museum tickets to attend Tiny Tots, but if you would like to also visit the museum, you can buy discounted tickets through Inside the Orchestra here. They will be available for you to pick up at check-in the morning of the event.
