Ladies and gents, tots and teddy bears, step right up to this daring double act of classical fun! Bassist Paul DeNola and violinist Heather LeDoux Green take a break from the NSO to introduce young audiences to some of the greatest music ever written. You'll never hear a peep out of them during the concert, but with instruments in hand and several props by their side, this "silent" comedic tag-team presents a hilarious program of music and mayhem (watch out for the occasional feud!) featuring bite-sized excerpts from Mozart, Copland, Rossini, Tchaikovsky, and other famous composers. 

Toddlers can bring their favorite stuffed animal to these playful interactive programs and have their teddy bear friend join in all the fun!

This NSO Teddy Bear Concert is most enjoyed by age 3–10.

Performance Timing: 45 minutes, with no intermission.

Come early for "Musical Playtime." Starting 45 minutes before each Teddy Bear Concert, enjoy music and movement activities especially designed for small children. A project of the Women's Committee for the NSO.
