Join us in celebrating 100 years of capturing the imaginations of children through music! Our Saturday afternoon series — made famous by conductor, composer, and engaging educator Leonard Bernstein — inspires a lifelong love of music through multimedia, interactive performances of music ranging from timeless classics to World Premieres. This season we look back on our illustrious past, focus on timely themes, and look to the future.

These concerts are for ages 6 and up. For ages 3-5, check out our Very Young People’s Concerts.
