Bassoonist Alexander Davis, one of Caramoor’s teaching artists, introduces our smallest audience members to his colorful, beautiful woodwind instrument. Alexander brings along his friends as they explore the many facets of the world of music!
Movement and musical discovery take flight in this new series for the littlest Caramoor attendees. Located in our flexible and accessible Education Center, this program geared for children ages 2–6 (and their caregivers) brings in world-class artists who will invite children to sing, wiggle, and dance to diverse styles of music.
This performance welcomes children who are neurodivergent, have sensory sensitivities, or just need a bit more space to enjoy the music. Modifications include relaxed house rules, and extra space for movement.
