Kids to Concerts

Kids to Concerts (KtC) is a free educational outreach program that introduces San Antonio children to faraway cultures from all over the world through folk music and dance in their very own schools. KtC annually benefits more than 50,000 children in grades K-12 through interactive, multicultural 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) and Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) compliant curriculum with the inimitable experience of live performing arts.

The KtC program objectives are: to introduce children to other cultures through international folk music at its best; to promote peace and respect for cultural differences; and to assist teachers and schools in fulfilling State and National Academic Standards. KtC 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 KtC 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.

MBAW’s Kids to Concerts program implements TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum.  TEKS & STEM Codes covered in Kids to Concerts 2016-2017 performances include Sci 6.04 (B), Sci 6.05 (B), Sci 6.06 (A), Sci. 6.09 (B), Sci 7.02 (B) and (C), Sci 7.03 (B), Sci 7.04 (B), Sci 8.02 (A) (B) and (C), Tech grades 6-8 codes 1.1(a) and 2.2(a), Engineering 130.362(b), (c)(1), Mat 6.08 (A), Mat 6.10 (A) and (B), Mat 7.09 (A), Mat 7.02 (C), Mat 7.13 (A) and (D), Mat 8.14 (A).  The merging of science, technology, engineering, and math with music is a uniquely engaging and thought provoking way to promote learning.

This year MBAW will bring Kids to Concerts to more than 50 San Antonio elementary schools, at no cost to schools visited.  Many of the students in the schools we visit never travel outside their neighborhood, much less their city.  Kids to Concerts brings the world to students, putting a face on the news and current events they may hear about on TV or in school, but may not relate to in their personal lives.  These performances not only create appreciation for music in our children but also cultivate the audience of tomorrow.
