A mainstay since 1983, the Festival’s Youth Concerts are enduringly popular events that make classical music fun and accessible to children of all ages. Interactive concerts are held during the Festival’s summer season at St. Francis Auditorium in the New Mexico Museum of Art. The concerts feature Festival musicians engaging children with fascinating storytelling—about composers, instruments, music, and musical styles—as well as performing repertoire drawn directly from the Festival’s regular programming.
The concerts delight and inspire our youngest audiences while also building their knowledge and curiosity about the world of music. They draw individual children of all ages, plus their family members or guardians, as well as hundreds of students from public schools and summer camps.
Admission is always free!
