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 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, enhance their musical education while broadening their worldview.

Kid's World Music Festival, as a part of International Music Festival Music Without Borders is a two-hour program featuring engaging interactive performances of Argentinian Tango, Spanish Flamenco and Russian folk dances that will take place in the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts in May 2015. This event is free and open to the public and presented specifically for kids in San Antonio and the surrounding area.

What a great time was had by all (at the 2014 Kids' World Music Festival). I am sorry we were late, we were trying to get creative with the busses. Too many people. Thank you for including us.

One student came back and said…. “It was awesome!!!!!”

Dear Anya Grokhovski,

On behalf of the administration of the School of Science and Technology of San Antonio we would like to thank you, Musical Bridges Around the World and especially the Russian musical group "The Flying Balalaika Brothers" for such a wonderful performance and concert in front of our high school students on Thursday, October 31, 2013. Our students learned lots of new things about Russian culture and music as well as interesting facts about Russian musical instruments. We really hope and are looking forward to hosting more fabulous and great concerts in the near future from all over the world at our school and share different cultures with our students at SST. Thank you again for such a delightful opportunity and all of those who helped to organize and bring this lovely performance to our campus. Kindest Wishes,
Mr. Mamedov

Good Day Ms. Grokhovski,
I want to thank you and Bandstar Music company for providing our school with the musical concert based on Russian folk music. The 2nd,3rd,4th and 5th grade students who attended were given not only a great show, but a look into the culture of Russia. The brothers held their attention and provided musical insights the students would not have received from any other source. Again, thank you for the October concert at Hidden Cove Elementary!

Dr. Ramos,

Thank you so much for the amazing opportunity that you provided to Beacon Hill students today. Our students loved the experience! It was wonderful to learn more about Puerto Rico and witness the beautiful culture of your country.

I hope that Gibaro de Puerto Rico has a wonderful visit in San Antonio. I so appreciate them coming to Beacon Hill after a very late arrival! Thank you again for an incredible morning!

All my best,

Rachel
