Concerts for Children
This season we continue to develop the formula of concerts for children, in which both concert cycles have been divided by age group. The concerts at 11 am are designed for younger children (aged 3 to 6) and those at 2 pm – for older kids (aged 7 to 12).
|11 am||MORNING CONCERTS FOR CHILDREN||children aged 3-6 - subscrip. Dm1 / Dm2|
|2 pm||AFTERNOON CONCERTS FOR CHILDREN||children aged 7-12 - subscrip. Ds1 / Ds2|
|11 am||MORNINGS FOR YOUNG MUSIC LOVERS||children aged 3-6 - subscrip. Pm1 / Pm2|
|2 pm||AFTERNOONS FOR YOUNG MUSIC LOVERS||children aged 7-12 - subscrip. Ps1 / Ps2|
While the division of each concert into two parts remains unchanged, the youngest audience will be presented with a shorter performance (about 75 minutes including the interval), and the concert for older kids will take c. 90 minutes (including the interval). The format will also make it possible to adjust the contents and manner of presentation to the needs of either age group.Concerts held on one day will have the same basic programme, but additional pieces of music will be presented to the older children.
We are aware of the fact that your families include kids of different ages and in some cases the introduced age divisions may not suit you. In such cases, we leave it up to the parents to decide which concert to choose.
Though the offer of cultural education is becoming more and more diversified nowadays, access to the (broadly conceived) art is still not always the question of a conscious choice. We wish to familiarise the youngest generation with the so-called high art and make that art attractive to children. We have therefore resolved to enrich our concerts in Concert Hall by adding elements of the contemporary children’s world: animated pictures, graphics, the welcome ritual, and musical games during the intervals. We intend to combine these “novelties” with the existing Warsaw Philharmonic tradition of family concerts.
We would like kindly to remind our audiences that:
- the concerts for children at Warsaw Philharmonic are accessible to all children who have turned three years old or more;
- eating and drinking in the halls is not allowed;
- photographing and recording during concerts is prohibited;
- since finding parking places close to the Philharmonic may be difficult, we encourage you to allow extra time for this purpose if you plan to arrive by car.
