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” 2017. The experience is one-of-a-kind!
Tiny Tots concerts take place in the 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.”
