What to Do at Community Music Day
Instrument Petting Zoo
Kids and adults alike explore, touch, and learn to make sounds on all the different instruments in a symphony orchestra, with the help of our young Crowden student Zookeepers! We even have special miniature string instruments for tiny hands and fingers.
Very First Concerts with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra
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).
This year's theme: Big, Bold, Brass!
Meet the trumpet, French horn, trombone, and tuba in this concert dedicated to our small but mighty brass section. Those buzzing mouthpieces, vibrating tubes, and flaring bells produce some of the most exciting and beautiful sounds of the orchestra.Maybe there’s a trombone in your future
Repeat performances 10:40am, 11:20am, & 12:00pm.
Family members of all ages can sing, dance, move, and drum together in our short class demonstrations. Sample Crowden early childhood classes and East Bay Music Together!
Drop into our auditorium for musical performances all day long! Featuring Crowden School ensembles and the San Francisco Girls Chorus!
