For young music fans, the Toronto Summer Music Festival prepared three fun and engaging one-hour concerts designed to introduce children, ages 5-12, to classical music. The free concerts are held on Wednesday mornings during the Festival – July 19, 26 and August 2 - at 10 a.m. in Walter Hall at the University of Toronto, 80 Queen’s Park, next to Museum Subway Station.

We invite children of all ages to experience music making at a world-class level,” says Jonathan Crow, artistic director of Toronto Summer Music. “The Kids Concerts are an opportunity for children to come and learn what inspired us to become professional musicians, and share the love of music that we feel every time we take the stage.”

Set to Bizet’s infectious music, Shoestring Opera presents an inspiring story of independence. In this age-appropriate adaptation of the famous opera, Carmen is a feisty newcomer. When the “coolest kid in school” tries to bully her, she stands up to him. Carmen’s story takes a look at the immigrant in Canadian society, the child who is different, schoolyard bullying, personal independence and the saving properties of art.  Click here for more information and to reserve tickets.
