YOUTH & EDUCATION
The MCO strongly believes that first exposures to classical music can make a tremendous difference in the mental and emotional development of children.
Our objective is to build a strong rapport & love of classical music with children of all ages. When they tell us “That was cool!” as they often do, we know we have succeeded in touching their lives.
Maestro Boris Brott says: “I have been writing and producing children’s concerts for over 50 years, no doubt highly influenced by my mentor Leonard Bernstein. My wife Ardyth, a recognized children’s author, has helped me create scripts for these concerts that not only present a story but also tackle important social issues such as prejudice, bullying, the importance of family.”
Our concerts are interactive, multi-media events geared to hold the child’s attention in 50 minutes or less.
