In the fall of 2021, we will once again be offering our 3 signature & FREE “Creative Stages” programs:

  • Jazz4Freedom is a program developed for 4th grade students linking Jazz to Black History in Pennsylvania and beyond. Taught by our experienced teaching artists, 4th graders are first engaged with a pre-show workshop about the Harlem Renaissance and growth of Jazz in Philadelphia. The highlight of Jazz4Freedom is a field trip to see Kimmel Center’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. celebration concert featuring music, dance, and commentary on social change throughout history. Students are inspired by a post-show workshop which links the Civil Rights Movement to Jazz and provides opportunity for reflection on the continuation of social change. Finally, classroom teachers are empowered to continue the discussion through provided study guides connecting Jazz4Freedom to academic standards in Social Studies and Language Arts.  (4th Grade)

  • One Musical Philadelphia explores the unique American art form of musical theater, while building community and encouraging teamwork. The program begins with an introductory workshop for 5th graders scheduled during the school day. Students then self select to participate in an 8-week residency to learn songs and choreography from a show selected by the Kimmel Center. Participants then share the routines with classmates during in-school assemblies, with support provided by the Kimmel Center. Finally, buses bring students and their families to the Kimmel Center Cultural Campus for an awesome performance, where students from schools across the region come together to perform their production numbers in one unforgettable finale!  (5th Grade)

  • #PhillyBeatz is a technology based creativity celebration designed for 6th graders. First, Kimmel Center artists visit 6th grade classrooms to deliver a
    creative writing workshop. Students then create a video set to beats provided by a Kimmel Center headliner. After submitting initial uploaded videos, the Kimmel Center supports talent shows at each participating school. From these shows, student representatives are selected to engage in music technology classes in the Kimmel Center’s learning lab. Those students then return to their school groups to share what they’ve learned and create more complex videos for submission. Finally, classmates, families, and friends are bused to the Kimmel Center Cultural Campus for a Creativity Festival showcasing student accomplishments. (6th Grade)
