• 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 classical 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 classical 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.

Kidenza is now a registered charity!

Kidenza is looking to appoint up to three new members to its Board of Trustees to help support the growth, strategic direction and governance of the organisation.

We are particularly looking for people with expertise in the following areas:

  • Strategic planning
  • Organisational development
  • Fundraising
  • Arts marketing
  • Accounts/finance
  • Education


The closing date for applications is 18 October 2020.

We are hoping that successful applicants will be appointed in time to join our Trustees meeting in January 2021.

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. If there is anything you think we can help with do let us know.

Best wishes and stay safe,

“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)

“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.”
