These are family-friendly events in Athens or Oconee that are perfect for children and have music involved in some way! I’ve put a star next to events that are for everyone in the family, even wiggly toddlers and preschoolers. The other concerts may be a bit more formal and appropriate for school age children. There are, of course, many other musical events in our community, but I have avoided anything that begins after 7PM.
There are many great student musician programs, including graduate students and those further along in their musical studies. These are often held at Edge Hall at Hugh Hodgson School of Music. The full calendar is here, but I didn’t include it in the listings, sticking to groups and ensemble or professional musicians.
I also didn’t include the great library storytimes hosted by Miss Rebecca at the Oconee County Library and Mr. Evan at the Athens library but I encourage you to check them out with your littlest family members!
If I’ve missed anything, please email me and let me know and I will edit this post to add it.
