The Florida Orchestra – Classical Kids

Parents, caregivers, and grandparents…we invite you to introduce the kids in your life to the live music you love. Now children ages 18 and younger can attend the 2014/2015 Tampa Bay Times Masterworks free. It’s the latest in our initiatives to make live symphonic music even more accessible to Tampa Bay.

We have reserved a limited number of free Classical Kids tickets for each Masterworks concert (Carmina Burana performances are the only exclusion). At least one paying adult purchase is required per order, and other restrictions apply. Be among the first to take advantage of this first-come, first-served offer!

These tickets are available only through The Florida Orchestra Ticket Center.

Fall LeavesFall Leaves

A beautiful children’s book and autumn leaves inspire creative movement and encourage children to make aesthetic choices about instrumental accompaniment to their leaf dance. A repeated refrain from the book provides an opportunity for vocal improvisation and the lesson also includes suggestions for creating an operetta. This lesson is suggested for children in grades K-1.
