Kinder Koncerts

Linda and Shearn Platt Kinder Koncerts: 2016-17 Season

Kinder Koncerts are designed to take the orchestra out of the concert hall and into neighborhoods to perform for our youngest patrons (pre-school through 2nd grade). Using churches, libraries and schools as community centers, these performances allow the San Diego Symphony to reach all segments of our community.

Kinder Koncerts are offered free of charge.

Kinder Koncerts are generously sponsored by Linda and Shearn Platt.

Reserve seats to any one of the performances below!
