What to do at Community Music Day
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, and hands-on musical activities geared toward families with young children (infants to 7 year-olds).
Have your paper and five different crayons at the ready for this participatory concert!
Instrument Petting Zoo Presentations
Usually Crowden’s entire campus transforms into our gigantic Instrument Petting Zoo, where kids and adults alike explore all the different instruments in a symphony orchestra. This year, we are proud to present a virtual version, featuring members of the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra in partnership with Berkeley Unified School District, Multicultural Music Fellowship, and Crowden pianist Elizabeth Dorman.
We'll be sharing musical performances featuring our inspiring young Crowden musicians!
Family members of all ages can sing, dance, move, and drum together in our short online class demonstrations led by East Bay Music Together!
Construct your own instruments to make music at home. Suggested supplies: toilet paper rolls, paper or plastic cups, paper or foil plates, rice or beans, lots of tape
If you're interested in The Crowden School for grades 3–8, our admissions manager Anette Skloot will be on hand in the live chats to answer your questions throughout the event.
