The Brazilian Symphony Orchestra's App Introduces Classical Music for Kids

In order to make classical music for kids seem fresh and appealing, the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra created the Class of Classics app.

The orchestra found that it has a strong appeal to people over the age bracket of 65, but it sought to introduce classical music to a new generation. With the help of technology, the Class of Classics app reveals how classical music may already be a part of a child's favorite things, such as in the background music of a beloved cartoon.

The orchestra recorded the soundtracks of cartoon episodes to classical music, making it possible for kids to get a newfound appreciation for the instruments and genre. To hear more beyond what could be played through a mobile device's speakers, the app also connected kids to nearby classical concerts.
