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: "The Sound of Music"

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).

San Francisco Chamber Orchestra at Crowden Community Music Day

"The Sound of Music"
Vibrating strings, buzzing reeds, and puffs of air all work together to make beautiful music in the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra. At this Very First Concert, you and your little ones will get to know a few of your favorite instruments in the string, woodwind, and brass families, and learn about the science behind their special sounds.

Repeat performances 10:40am, 11:20am, & 12:00pm.
