Community Music Day is Crowden's annual musical carnival for all ages. Join us for musical fun throughout the morning!
Crowden is planning a hybrid Community Music Day, with a more limited, adapted in-person event as well as online livestreams of our Very First Concerts with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra. The in-person event will follow all City of Berkeley, Alameda County, California state, and CDC guidelines for live events, and we are formulating our plans with an abundance of caution. Please stay tuned for additional information!
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).
Very First Concerts will be both livestreamed online and presented in person this year!
Instrument Petting Zoo
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 fall, we plan a limited Instrument Petting Zoo, with increased supervision and sanitization to ensure everyone's safety. Since woodwind and brass instruments increase risk of transmission, this year we'll feature outdoor instrument demonstrations instead of our Woodwind and Brass petting zoo rooms.
We'll be sharing musical performances featuring our inspiring young Crowden musicians!
Construct your own instruments to make music at home.
East Bay Music Together and Crowden's Early Childhood music faculty members will give short class demonstrations for the whole family! Big kids are welcome to join in the fun too!
If you're interested in The Crowden School for grades 3–8, our admissions manager Anette Skloot will be on hand to answer your questions.
