Children can step, kick, pirouette, and wiggle with music during Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra’s Kinderconcerts for ages two to five. Musicians perform 30 minutes of fun and whimsical music, with Kathryn Goodson tickling keys on the piano and Fritz Kaenzig blowing a mean tuba. Kaenzig is the Tuba euphonium professor at the University of Michigan and Principal Tubaist in the Grant Park Orchestra, so those with a keen ear will not be let down by the quality of talent and musicianship. Storytelling will narrate over the music, entrancing the children in a fantastical tale, with musical movements corresponding to the developing story. Child expert Gari Stein will lead the children in movement and storytelling. Kinderconcerts are a great chance to introduce children to classical music, keeping them moving so they are fully engaged!
