Tiny Tots is an engaging 45-minute performance created to introduce kids ages 6 and under to orchestral music – by putting them inside a 30+ piece professional orchestra! The conductor faces the audience and engages the kids in “theatre of the mind” activities, teaching them about the music, getting them moving, and encouraging them to explore. After every concert, children are given a chance to meet the musicians, ask questions, and get a closer look at the instruments.

Our program is an experience like no other – children get to discover what it is to be truly inside the orchestra as they are seated on the floor
and surrounded by our professional musicians. By incorporating contemporary music, we teach children that orchestral music is all around them and part of their everyday lives. By introducing classical music, we help them explore music they might never have heard before. By encouraging them to interact directly with the conductor and the musicians we show them that music is designed to be explored and enjoyed. By highlighting a child their age excelling musically, we inspire them to pick up an instrument and remind them that music is accessible. Through partnerships with Central City Opera, Kim Robards Dance, and Hannah Kahn Dance Company, we feature a professional opera singer and professional dancers in every performance.

Tiny Tots concerts take place in th fall, winter and spring, in venues all over the Denver metro area – including Lakewood, Parker, downtown Denver, and Adams County. Preschool groups are encouraged to set up field trips! Check out the full schedule and sign up for a concert here.

“Ingenious, captivating, unexpected, inspiring!!”

“The sensory and engagement that the show provided was absolutely phenomenal!  I was extremely thrilled with the level of participation from all of the people in the audience, especially our group.  I loved the little girl, Theresa, I believe, who played the piano, as well as, the way the performance was very much educational and entertaining.  Starting the show off by breaking the orchestra down into separate groups was so beautifully organized!”

“I’ve never seen the 3-year-old so excited about something she’d done during the day. She told me about all different aspects of the concert and was so excited that the tube player let her ‘press the buttons’ afterwards.”

“This was our 2nd event and I cannot even wait until the Fall events. We plan on attending as many as possible.”
