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).
"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.
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!
Construct your own instruments to make music at home.
Relax from the crowds in the “chill” room, where we’ll show music-related movies.
