Classical Music & Kids

The OCM strongly believes that first experiences with classical music can make a tremendous difference in the mental and emotional development of children. Our objective is to build a strong rapport & love of classical music with children of all ages. When they tell us “That was cool!” as they often do, we know we have succeeded in touching their lives.

Having myself, as a young child, had the opportunity to attend orchestra concerts for young audiences a few times, I am deeply convinced of the importance of exposing children to the beauty of orchestral music from an early age and of opening their horizons to this wonderful world of sounds and emotions” says maestro Lacombe. 

OCM’s annual concerts are interactive, multi-media events geared to hold the child’s attention in 50 minutes or less.

We look forward to welcome your students to these exciting concerts!

A coproduction with Jeunesses Musicales Canada 

This musical bestiary brings together 2 key works from the children’s orchestral repertoire: Francis Poulenc’s Babar The Elephant, based on a text by Jean de Brunhoff, and Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. Simple, refined and evocative, the music of both scores has been met with undiminished success since their creation. Tradition and imagination come together in this festive concert!

The performance will take place in French and is geared toward children between the ages of 5 and 10, and the duration is approximately 50 minutes.
