Teddy Bear Series


The Teddy Bear Concert Series is our newest program, created to introduce preschool & kindergarten students (ages 3-6) to the orchestra through story, movement, and live music. ISO violinist, Victoria Griswold, has written three stories for the Series, and the fourth will be premiering in Spring 2018.

The Giant's Violin follows the adventures of a young boy who discovers a giant violin in his attic!

The Big Note the adventures of a young boy as he searches through a symphony orchestra to find the source of the big note that he hears. 

The Garden Symphony follows a ladybug’s search through the garden for her own special song. 

Each program features five musicians from the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and narration by Perry Accetturo of the ISO Learning Community.
