BATON ROUGE, LA (BRProud) – Kids’ Orchestra (KO) will host a live premiere of its free and virtual KO@Home Concerts Showcase on Friday, July 31, at 12:00 pm on Facebook.

Though Kids’ Orchestra (KO) students across East Baton Rouge Parish have been staying at home, they have continued to make music. According to KO, the virtual music learning program was launched response to the COVID-19 pandemic. KO@Home seeks to help students and familiars across EBR keep music alive. KO has adapted its annual Spring Neighborhood Concert Series to a virtual setting with KO@Home Concerts. Students will now have the opportunity to put on a final performance at home for their families.

“KO@Home has benefited our students because they have been able to stay connected with great musicians and artists who inspire them to develop a lasting appreciation for musical performance and expression,” said Larry Heard, KO Instrument Inventory Manager and Program Manager.

The upcoming KO@Home Concerts Showcase are free and open to the public. To tune into the KO@Home Concerts Showcase, visit KO’s Facebook Page here.
