Join us for musical fun throughout the day! Community Music Day is Crowden’s largest outreach event, attracting around 1,700 individuals each year.
Instrument Petting Zoo
Kids and adults alike explore, touch, and learn to make sounds on all the different instruments in a symphony orchestra, with the help of our young Crowden student Zookeepers! We even have special miniature string instruments for tiny hands and fingers.
Very First Concerts with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra
A One and a Two: Adventures in Counting
San Francisco Chamber Orchestra and Crowden Music Center encourage audiences to get up and dance in Very First Concerts, a classical series designed with the youngest listeners in mind.
One two three four, what is the rhythm that we’re tapping on the floor? If you can count to four, or even if you can’t, come let the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra teach you how important numbers are in music. Patterns build into structures, and divide into details. Twos, threes, and fours swirl around each other with every note. The conductor must count; the musicians must count; and we’ll teach you to count too!
Each concert features a central theme, short selections, tumbling mats for fidgety toddlers, and hands-on musical activities geared toward families with young children (infants to 7 year-olds).
Repeat performances at 10:40am, 11:20am, & 12:00pm.
Family members of all ages can sing, dance, move, and drum together in our short class demonstrations.
Construct your own instruments to make music at home with!
Relax from the crowds in the “chill” room, where we’ll show music-related movies.
Drop into our newly renovated auditorium for musical performances all day long!
