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.
