Tiny Tots: Inside the Story (Field Trips for ECE – 1st Grade)


Tiny Tots programs are 45-minute immersive, interactive concerts for kids 7 and under (and their adults) to get truly “inside the orchestra.” Attendees are seated on the ground and encircled by our 30+ piece orchestra. Music selection, program design, and scripting are all geared to connect young children with music – physically, emotionally, and mentally. Named in Denver Westword’s “Best of Denver,” the experience is one-of-a-kind! These programs include a 45-minute immersive, interactive orchestral performance and meet and greet time with the musicians and performers.

Tiny Tots: Inside the Story is a large-scale musical storytime. Watch, listen, and follow along as the new children’s book, A Surprise for Rabbit, comes to life with musicians, dancers, actors, and more! Tiny Tots programs provide wonderful field trip opportunities for students in first grade and younger.
