Kids to Concerts (KtC) is a free educational outreach program designed by Musical Bridges annually benefiting 25,000 children in grades K-12 through interactive, multicultural musical and dance performances by world-class artists of the highest caliber.
This program is the first of its kind in the area, and is regularly praised by educators and children alike. KtC provides interactive concerts for children while integrating Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) compliant curriculum with the inimitable experience of live performing arts.
Public education continually faces billions of dollars in proposed budget cuts, slashing and in some cases eliminating funding for music and arts education. Musical Bridges Around the World helps fill the void of music and arts education in public schools, providing engaging and culturally edifying musical presentations.
Kids to Concerts brings the rare, precious experience of live art -- integrating music and dance with science, technology, engineering, and math -- to San Antonio children who would otherwise not have the opportunity to enjoy live experiences of this unique caliber. With bright costumes, unique instruments, short educational videos, the new Kids to Concerts downloadable app
and the vibrant energy of live performance, diverse traditions and music come alive for students , enhancing their musical education while broadening their worldview.
MBAW will present our first Kid's World Music Festival, 9:30am on Tues. Feb. 25, 2014, at Laurie Auditorium on the beautiful campus of Trinity University. This event is free and open to the public and presented specifically for kids in San Antonio and surrounding areas. An extension of MBAW's Kids to Concerts educational outreach program and part of our inaugural international music festival Music Without Borders, this two hour program features engaging interactive performances of American jazz, Spanish flamenco, Russian folk, and Cuban songs.
