Preschool & Primary K-2

Our ensembles tell engaging children’s stories with music. Many of your students may never have seen a violin (or the Three Pigs, for that matter) in person. These programs absolutely captivate young listeners. All ensembles can present up to four performances per day.

To schedule a performance in your school, call the DPAA Education Department: 937-224-3521 x1140.

The Orchestra and You

We know they'd rather run and jump all over the concert hall, but we think we've got a compromise: get these kids physically involved with music. They become the orchestra. They watch for direction, and they play imaginary instruments. This audiovisual introduction to the symphony orchestra is perfect preparation for attending one of our field-trip opportunities, such as a Magic Carpet Concert. We recommend a lively audience of 50-75. Grade 2

Dates: October-April

Cost: Free
Performance Time: 45 minutes
