Free BrittKids Koncerts
We hope you enjoyed our 2020 and 2021 BrittKids Koncert Videos Series, many of which will be available to watch on Britt's YouTube channel indefinitely! We will be live and in-person for 2022 in the Britt Performance Garden and other locations yet to be announced. We can’t wait to see you in-person again! Stay tuned to our BrittKids Facebook page and our Britt Bee newsletter for the latest updates. If you want to be the very first to know our 2022 Koncert lineup, join the BrittKids Klub today!
BrittKids Koncerts create a fun and casual setting for local families to introduce their children to music, dance, and the visual arts. These free performances, especially designed for children under age 10, help our next generation of artists learn about the performing arts in a way that is both entertaining and educational. Early exposure to live performance increases a child’s interest in artistic activities, such as learning an instrument, singing, dancing, painting, or participating in a theater program.
For more information about the BrittKids Koncerts program, contact Kay Hilton, Director of Education & Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org.
