About The Event
“This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.”
- Leonard Bernstein
In addition to a Mozart for Munchkins interactive family concert, this event will have a "festival" atmosphere with local businesses providing (for free!) an arts and crafts table, snacks, photo booth, a pediatric dentistry display (with puppets!), and more! We feel fortunate that in our second season, thousands of families have come together at over 100 concerts throughout NYC and beyond. As we conclude our season, we want to express our gratitude by supporting families and children in need.
Meg Rybicki Photography, a New York based artistic lifestyle photographer, will offer a photo booth with instruments and Mozart wigs! https://www.megrybickiphotography.com/

Mozart for Munchkins is an interactive concert experience for children of all ages and their families based in New York City. At our interactive concerts, children are invited to observe, explore, sing, visualize, dance and wiggle about, while parents, grandparents, and caregivers sit back and unwind. While the setting is informal, our programs remains first rate.
In addition to a recent partnership with Lincoln Center Kids, the series holds concerts in schools, concert halls, museums, galleries and community centers. Mozart for Munchkins’ performers frequent renowned music halls, from Carnegie Hall to Broadway.
We are excited to raise money for the children of the world through music, joy, and community.
As always, kids under 12 are free!
Each interactive performance is followed by an "instrument petting zoo" where everyone is welcome to try the instruments and meet the performers!
Photographs will be taken during the performance. If you do not want photographs of you or your munchkin(s) taken, please send us an email or speak with us before the concert.
BYOB*! (*Blanket): As we enjoy performing in an open and welcoming space, we invite you to bring your own blanket and/or mat so that you and your little ones can join us on the floor with our musicians. While we do provide seating at the perimeter of the concert space, the floor seats are the best seats (in our opinion!)
