Concerts for Very Young People

Concerts for Very Young People

In partnership with community venues, the BSO offers Concerts for Very Young People to bring BSO musicians and their youngest audiences closer together in a series of fun, interactive performances tied to educational themes.  The performances offer young children an opportunity to engage with high-quality musical experiences in an intimate and welcoming setting. 

In its newest collaboration, the BSO has partnered with WBUR’s Circle Round to record new episodes of the popular children’s podcast that shares folk tales from around the world.  BSO musicians are featured performing original music composed by Eric Shimelonis, accompanying scripts written by Rebecca Sheir and narrated by actors.
