Mozart for Munchkins creates a relaxed, interactive and engaging environment where children and their families can experience and enjoy the wonders of classical music with a hint of jazz and bluegrass. Children of all ages are welcome to observe, explore, discover, crawl, sing and dance to their hearts’ content, while parents, grandparents, and caregivers sit back, relax and enjoy the concert. While our concert setting is informal, the programming remains first rate; from Bach to Bernstein, Beethoven to bluegrass and Tchaikovsky to Thelonious Monk, Mozart for Munchkins features outstanding repertoire performed by world-class musicians—an unforgettable experience for the whole family!
Each interactive performance is followed by an “instrument petting zoo” where everyone is welcome to try the instruments and meet the performers!
Co-founders of Mozart for Munchkins, Sara Leila Sherman (piano) and Hilary Castle (violin) are thrilled to be presenting a program inspired by our magnificent natural world! Each piece will have an animal or nature reference from a swan in Saint-Saëns, sunshine in Bach, moonlight in Debussy and a barn animal dance in Barber. Beyond the classical masterpieces, there will be some sing-along favorites as well!
