Taking it Beyond the Concert Hall: From the Top at the Boston Children’s Museum
It’s that time again! The leaves are changing color, the air is getting crisper, and Boston’s young musicians are in the midst of another academic year. Lots of music is yet to be made, some in a formal concert hall, some out in our community. We find it’s the unexpected encounters with music that often have the most meaning.
If you live in Greater Boston and would like to introduce a child to a musical instrument for the first time, or see a talented From the Top arts leader perform up close, we have a great program for you! Young musicians from our Center for the Development of Arts Leaders will perform and present at the Boston Children’s Museum on selected Fridays at 6:00 PM and 6:30 PM. The two short programs will delight you and your kids, and be a perfect compliment to your museum experience.
We are excited for the second year of this partnership between From the Top and the Boston Children’s Museum! For From the Top’s arts leaders, it is one of the most meaningful ways to share their music with the community. For many of the children in the audience, it will be their first experience with live music or a musical instrument.

“Collaborating with Boston Children’s Museum is a great way to help our young arts leaders share their music and passions,” said Linda Gerstle, From the Top’s Director of Education & Community Partnerships. “We hope that the kids and families at the Museum have fun, and that our musicians experience what it means to inspire a new audience.”
Join From the Top’s arts leaders at the Boston Children’s Museum on these dates this season: November 14, 2014, January 16, 2015, February 20, 2015, and April 17, 2015 at 6:00 PM and 6:30 PM.
