When Lucy Kalantari won the first of her two Grammy awards, she shared the award with a distinguished cellist in her band: her five-year-old son Darius. This summer, she shares her jazz age-inspired music with Caramoor’s youngest audience. Children and caregivers of all ages are invited to sing along (in English and Spanish!) to classic children’s songs, swinging originals, and music that highlights the joys of life, community, and resilience.

Movement and musical discovery take flight in this 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.
