To make classical music engaging and build future audiences: that's the mission of the Little Orchestra Society. And it's one the company has ably carried out for nearly 70 years by producing family- and kid-friendly works that pair live orchestration with puppetry, dance, and other arts. The multidisciplinary performances range from Lolli-Pops concerts for aspiring conductors ages 3–5, to the Peabody Award-winning Happy Concerts for Young People series, recommended for those ages 6–12. It's a unique approach that has won them some notable fans—the society's artistic advisors include Patti Smith, Kevin Kline, Rita Moreno, and Joel Grey.
