The New Haven Symphony Orchestra Attracts Younger Crowd-- Much Younger

The VCF sponsors a kid-friendly concert series performed by the New Haven Symphony Orchestra encouraging children to take an interest in orchestra instruments.

The New Haven Symphony Orchestra performed a series of three kid-friendly concerts this winter at Shelton Intermediate School including "Peter and the Wolf," a "Tales and Tunes" program about rhythm and a "Simply Strings" program focused on chamber music. An "Instrument Discovery Zone" preceded the concerts and encouraged children to touch, tap or toot on orchestra instruments.
