The KCO’s connections to the youth of Lower Manhattan are strong and wide. We have visited PS 150 (Tribeca), PS 234 (Tribeca), PS 1 (Chinatown), PS/IS 126 (Lower East Side), PS 3 (West Village), PS 397 (South Street Seaport), the Peck Slip School (South Street Seaport), PS 276 (Battery Park City), PS/IS 89 (Battery Park City), Stuyvesant High School, and Millennium High School. We’ve brought musical presentations to the Trinity School, Grace Church School and to the families of Battery Park City in a partnership with the Battery Park City Authority. We’ve collaborated with the Tap City Youth Ensemble of the American Tap Dance Foundation and with youth soloists of the Florentine Music School.

Our presentations are generally 35 to 45 minutes in length and consist of performances interspersed with anecdotes and entertaining talks on music history and theory.

School administrators and music directors wishing to inquire about a visit from the KCO may contact KCO Manager Alison Simko through the form below, or by sending an email to alisonsimko@knickerbocker-orchestra.org 

OUR GOAL IS TO TEACH CHILDREN TO APPRECIATE THE BEAUTY OF CLASSICAL MUSIC, AND PERHAPS REAWAKEN THEIR PARENTS’ CONNECTIONS TO CLASSICAL MUSIC.
