Very First Concerts with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra at Crowden Music Center
FREE to the entire community!
San Francisco Chamber Orchestra and Crowden Music Center encourage audiences to get up and dance in Very First Concerts, a classical series designed with the youngest listeners in mind.
Each concert features a central theme, short selections, tumbling mats for fidgety toddlers, and hands-on musical activities geared toward families with young children (infants to 7 year-olds).

Our ears don’t close, and we hear things all day and all night. But when do we really listen? And what happens when we do? Join us in a voyage of discovery into the Land of Listen, where wonderful things can happen if you’re really quiet!
"Take off your seatbelts and let your youngster wriggle, squirm, and dance to first-rate classical music. We've designed this series for very young listeners, and to allow parents to escape the restrictions of a traditional concert hall. Discover-or rediscover-the joys of live classical music with us!"
-SFCO Music Director Benjamin Simon
