Kids Korner Concert Preview
The Kids Korner mini Concert Preview debuted in the auditorium lobby on September 30, 2012, the 1st concert of the 80th Season. The program runs from 2:20 PM to 2:45 PM, before each concert. Creator and speaker at the delightful and inspiring presentations is Laura Stone, oboist with the orchestra who also explains the woodwinds in the Symphony Association's Music Enrichment Program (MEP).
In addition to learning about the compositions to be performed in the concerts, each child recieves a special Children's Program. The printed programs for young people were created several years ago by Wendy Velasco, former presenter of the string instruments in the MEP. In addition to information about concert manners, the composers and their compositions, the program features musical quizzes and crossword puzzles.
