Concert Adventures for Early Childhood was founded in 2014 by Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra violinist Victoria Kintner. The programs have reached over 8000 families through live performances at libraries, schools, hospitals, and performing art centers. Her 5 programs introduce 18 different instruments from the symphony orchestra.
Concert Adventures for Early Childhood introduces the instruments of the symphony orchestra through fun interactive programs, books, and videos so young children can experience the educational, developmental, emotional, and social benefits of music.
Victoria Kintner joined the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra in April 1993. In 2014 she began designing programs for the ISO's Teddy Bear Series and in 2020 she began working as an Early Childhood Program Consultant.
Ms. Kintner has received the Alice Akins Award for Excellence in Music Education, the Patch Award, and
she is a 2017 Creative Renewal Fellowship Grant winner.
In 2019 Victoria was awarded the Ford Musician Award for Excellence in Community Service for her work in children's programming. This award was presented by The League of American Orchestras.
