• Welcome to Kidenza

Orchestral concerts for children. fun, educational and never stuffy! for families and schools

See us in action!

Playing music together helps us learn to listen, to become good team players and to develop our creativity and confidence. At Kidenza we introduce children to FUN orchestral music in the hope that they will be inspired to learn an instrument and perhaps join a band or orchestra.

Kidenza aims to break down barriers to orchestral music for children of all ages and backgrounds.  We use music to inspire, to increase confidence and to improve wellbeing, using a child-centred, creative approach to music education.

Exciting News: Kidenza is now a registered charity!


As with any Arts Organisation funding and support is vital for our survival and this has never been more true than this year.

Along with the Sleigh Ride film we have also put together a fun, factual quiz for schools to use in the classroom. We would normally have performed to thousands of school children and we’ve missed them all so we hope this FREE digital offering will bring a smile to everyone’s faces!

Covid-19 2020  

Autumn 2020 Update:

We hope you are managing to stay well in this awful crisis.

These truly are unprecedented times and unfortunately our tour will have to be postponed until further notice. Like all of those in the arts sector we have been hit hard and have taken the decision to hibernate until such time that it is safe for us to resume what we do best – inspire, educate and entertain thousands of children with our orchestral concerts.

We fully intend to reschedule all our concerts and will post details as soon as we know more.

Whilst we hibernate we will be thinking and planning as this situation continues to evolve.

Free teaching resources for parents and schools are available -click the schools menu at the top of the page.

Best wishes and stay safe,

“I think the concert was absolutely incredible, I have been telling all my friends about it! It was so informative and fun for the children. We bought the cd of Peter and the Wolf at the concert and my daughter listens to it constantly , always referring back to the instruments we saw.”

“Amazing concert! At the end I had children almost hyperventilating to tell me how much they wanted to learn an instrument.  They have never seen anything like that before.  Fantastic!” (Head of Music)
