Adventures of the Young Composers is a cultural program that introduces small children to world cultures, classical music, instruments and famous composers.
Each week students hear about one famous classical composer and his home country.

They learn a few words in the language, see traditional clothing, learn a simple dance, and see the country on a world map. Maximum of 50 students per session.
