The Very Young People’s Concerts are created specifically for preschool, kindergarten, first and second grade students. The program Shall We Dance explores all types of dance music with the help of Maestro Lucas Richman and the KSO’s animated friend, Picardy Penguin. Picardy will guide the students in the basics of dancing a waltz in Richard Rodgers’ “Shall We Dance” from The King and I. Maestro Richman’s own Variations at the Barre will accompany different ballet techniques performed on stage and will introduce Tchaikovsky’s beloved Swan Lake. The Maestro will lead us on a trip to South America for some Argentinean Tango with Astor Piazolla and then to Bohemia for Dvorak’s Slavonic Dances. The program will also feature a tap routine and even the familiar Hokey-Pokey. Join us for this fun exploration of music & dance!

Student Ticket Subsidy Program
Very Young People’s Concerts are eligible for the Student Ticket Subsidy (STS) Program: The program exists to provide ticket subsidy funds to public schools for arts and cultural experiences to encourage schools to expose Tennessee students to a broad variety of cultural experiences, arts disciplines and artists. For more information, visit the TAC website.
Please note that you will need to apply for Ticket Subsidy in the fall if you plan to attend the concert in February. Grants from this fund are usually depleted within a couple days of the submission date.
