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. It engaged over 15,000 kids last year through interactive, multicultural performances by world-class artists of the highest caliber. The program is the first of its kind in the area and is regularly praised by schools and educators alike.

Partner Schools

In the last school year of 2019-20, we brought Kids to Concerts to more than 50 Partner schools in the Bexar County and surrounding areas, at no cost each participating school. Many of the students impacted by this program do not have the opportunity to 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 that 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 our audience of tomorrow.
