Join us for a delightful musical journey tailored for young hearts as trombonist Mariel Bildsten takes the stage. Called “irrepressibly spontaneous” by Downbeat Magazine, Mariel is a passionate educator and frequent jazz headliner who promises to captivate young audiences in an experience filled with joy and wonder.

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.
