Cool Concerts for Kids

Symphony Under Construction


A passionate educator, Fleischer has co-authored several instructional pieces for children in collaboration with his wife, comedian Heidi Joyce, which were premiered by the National Symphony Orchestra, including three rap pieces for orchestra. Currently their children’s programs, “Cool Concerts for Kids” have been performed with great success with symphony orchestras around the country. One of these is called "Symphony Under Construction," in which the young audience builds its own melody during the program, and then hears it harmonized and performed by the orchestra.


Additional pictures and information about these innovative youth programs will appear on the Web site in the near future.

Throughout, conductor Randall Craig Fleischer accented the complementary and contrasting sounds made by different instruments in combination...the orchestra ended in a blaze of musical glory...
