Music for the Very Young

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Bring your little ones along as we set off on a journey to discover Music Around the World! We will have a blast as we move and groove to the music of North America, South America, Europe and Africa. Join us as we explore the differences in melody, harmony, rhythm, dance, instruments and more! 

Theatre for the Very Young

Alliance Theatre

Professional performances for children ages 05 years old and their grown-ups. 

Each performance is an artistic experience that overcomes age, developmental barriers and language, expanding the consciousness of very young audience members and integrating bi-lingual elements into each show.

On the second Sunday of each month, we offer free admission for all visitors and special family-friendly programming from 1 to 4 p.m.
