Very First Concert at Crowden

Crowden is proud to have partnered with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra to create 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).

Due to overwhelming popularity, SFCO now performs Very First Concerts throughout the Bay Area. We are proud to continue to feature this innovative series here at Crowden, where it all began.

"A One and a Two: Adventures in Counting"
Repeat performances at 10:40am, 11:20am, and 12:00pm

One two three four, what is the rhythm that we’re tapping on the floor? If you can count to four, or even if you can’t, come let the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra teach you how important numbers are in music. Patterns build into structures, and divide into details. Twos, threes, and fours swirl around each other with every note. The conductor must count, the musicians must count, and we’ll teach you to count too!

"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
