Teddy Bear Series
The Teddy Bear Series presented by the Indianapolis Colts introduces preschool & kindergarten students (ages 3-7) to the orchestra through story, movement, and live music. ISO violinist Victoria Griswold has written each of our stories, two of which are now available as picture books! Each performance features five musicians from the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and narration by Perry Accetturo of the ISO Learning Community.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have cancelled the remainder of our scheduled performances. However, as a special treat, we made these videos just for you! Enjoy Monkey's Jungle Jam and The Garden Symphony at home!
