Will my child also attend outside concerts?

Typically, a variety of concerts will go on throughout the year. Kidznotes families are welcome to attend any concert regardless of your child’s participation.

Once we have identified safe and socially distant opportunities for your child to participate,  you will receive these dates as they are scheduled, and are subject to change as the year progresses.

Will I need to provide transportation for my child?

Yes. While Kidznotes works with Durham Public Schools and Wake County Public Schools to provide bus transportation to class after school as well as to outside events, there will be times that you will be responsible for dropping off and picking up your child.

How can I become involved with Kidznotes as a parent?

Kidznotes families are invited to attend rehearsal sessions and performances, accompany children on field trips, meet with program staff, and even volunteer in the program.
