Programs are available for free via and the Hall’s Facebook and Instagram channels, and can also be streamed on-demand following the webcast date.

The series continues on Friday, June 12 at 2PM EDT with the Lullaby Project’s annual Celebration Concert. This year’s concert has been reimagined as a virtual experience for families and partners and will feature recorded performances from Lullaby Project teaching artists in their homes, as well as stories behind the songs and the community of artists, songwriters, and partners who worked together to create them.

Musical Explorers returns to Learn with Carnegie Hall on Wednesday, June 17 at 2PM EDT with a program that features jazz, bomba and plena, and Brazilian music. This concert series invites families and kids to learn songs from around the world, building a deeper understanding of different cultures while developing basic singing and listening skills. This episode will feature a full digital concert experience. Families are invited to learn more about the music using Carnegie Hall’s new step-by-step Musical Explorers guide for families and to discover more about these diverse musical genres and the featured artists before the concert.
