Kids trying real band instruments
Childrens' Concert in Greenwood's Surina Square Amphitheater
Greater Greenwood Community Band at Surina Square Amphitheater Children’s Concert

Kids from age zero to 100 will enjoy this live concert in the park, featuring a wide range of songs for children and grownups alike. We refer to this one as a Childrens’ concert mainly because we include several arrangements popular with kids from current and past generations, but really this annual concert is for fun for all ages!

Enjoy free refreshments and gift give-aways!

Would your kids like to try to play a real musical instrument? Before and after the concert is what we call a “petting zoo” where members of the Greater Greenwood Community Band put their old instruments on display to let kids attending the concert try a wide variety of real band instruments. Many kids from previous years used this opportunity to choose their musical pathway through school and even started taking lessons early as a result. Case in point: the author of the page you are reading now ended up getting a French horn and kids’ music lessons from Guitarworks of Greenwood for his 8 year old daughter as a result of her excitement after actually trying one. Since French horn is NOT easy, perhaps advanced skills that result from starting so early with an advanced instrument will result in earning a nice scholarship in the future. (Mom & Dad’s hopeful wishes shine through.)

This Childrens’ Concert begins at 7:00. The “instrument petting zoo” will be set up around 6:15. Arrive early for plenty of time to play.

Bring your kids, grandkids, nephews, nieces and have them invite their friends! We anticipate a crowd of 500 or more people for this show. You won’t want to miss this!

By the way… check out this video from our Just for Fun page.

Pets are allowed. If you do bring your dog, be sure to keep them on a short leash, keep a close eye on them, and to bring a poop sack for necessary clean up!)
