Children’s Concerts

Since 1995 the Series has presented free children’s concerts to schools and home school groups throughout the region, performed by some of the artists from the evening concerts.

Schools are urged to include a majority of students who have not had previous opportunities to be exposed to classical music.

Invitations are issued to schools and home school groups in the following areas: City of Charlottesville, the counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Nelson, Culpeper and Orange. Many schools in the outlying areas tell us that they have never been offered such invitations before.

By the end of the 2017/18 season the Series will have presented 50 children's concerts.  Approximately 56,000 students will have attended these concerts.

Please call Karen Pellón at 434-244-9505 if you would like your school or school group to be included in these invitations.
