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.

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

Maestro Boris Brott says: “I am thrilled to have been writing and producing children’s concerts for over 50 years, no doubt highly influenced by my mentor Leonard Bernstein.

My wife Ardyth, a recognized children’s author, has helped me create scripts for these concerts that not only present a story but also tackle important social issues such as prejudice, bullying, the importance of family.”

Even Ludwig van Beethoven, a young genius who became one of the most renowned composers in the world, faced bullying. His story of surviving and overcoming being bullied by his colleagues and father will surely inspire everyone!

Maestro Boris Brott helps us discover the great Beethoven and also shares his own personal stories of being bullied at school.

This exciting and interactive digital concert merges beautiful symphonic music with an educational and moving story. Kids will learn how they can help each other or how they themselves can overcome a situation of bullying.
