Children’s Day Art Park

The Austin Symphony Orchestra is excited to bring you “Children’s Day Art Park” in the comfort and safety of your own home! We know that it’s a difficult time for everyone so we wanted to bring a little musical cheer to you and your little ones this summer.

Below is a set of four videos. There is a “Welcome” video from local storyteller Bernadette Nason. The next two videos are the classic story of “Snow White” narrated in English by Bernadette Nason and en español by Jacob Rivera. The music portion of the story is performed by ASO principal oboist, Julianne Webner. The last video is “Creativity Corner.”  In this video, Allison Liu will show you and your child how to make maracas with items you can find in your own home!

We would love your feedback once you have watched the videos. Please click here to take the quick survey.

We rely on our generous sponsors and donors to keep programs like “Children’s Day Art Park” going. We hope you will consider making a donation.
