About Young People's Concerts™
The Young People's Concerts were begun in 1922 by "Uncle" Ernest Schelling, who used glass lantern slides to augment his teaching about orchestral music. The concerts achieved worldwide popularity when Leonard Bernstein hosted them on live television in the 1960s. The same spirit of learning and wonder animates the Young People's Concerts today, awakening children's musical curiosity and laying the foundation for a lifetime of enjoyment.
Come early to meet the musicians, try out some instruments, play musical games, explore the day's theme, and get ready to enjoy a great concert!
