Philharmonic Playground: “Allegro and Adagio” (Photo courtesy New York Philharmonic)

WQXR Presents a New York Philharmonic Very Young People’s Concert

Saturday, April 9, 2016

11:00 AM

Imagine a playground made of music—where slides take you high and low, merry-go-rounds go fast and slow, and songs are both quiet and loud.

Join Philippe the Penguin and musicians of the New York Philharmonic on a musical playground and explore how tempo makes music fun, with selections from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.

Designed by Philharmonic musicians together with faculty of Columbia University's Teacher College, Very Young People's Concerts combine games, storytelling, and great music in one fun-filled hour that unlocks children's imagination and talent. For ages 3-6.
