PNC Music Explorers

After more than 30 years of “Musical Rainbows” it’s time to hit the ‘refresh’ button. Starting this fall, the PNC Musical Rainbow Series will be transformed into the PNC Music Explorers series. Children and families will learn about the instruments of the orchestra, one at a time, with Cleveland Orchestra musicians and guests, and an energetic host who engages children through singing, clapping, and moving to the music. Each 30-minute, music-packed adventure also features short selections and instrument demonstrations designed to engage and entertain young music explorers — just right for children 3-6 years old.

The Cleveland Orchestra's PNC Music Explorers are sponsored by PNC Bank, and endowed by the Pysht Fund.
