MINDFUL MUSIC MOMENTS
City Silence’s Mindful Music Moments has partnered with world class orchestras, opera companies and others to bring you mindfulness and classical music. Take this time to quiet your mind, find your breath, and connect with your very best self.
“I like that we get to listen to music in the morning because it helps me think better when we do our work.”
Backed by Opera Columbus, with additional support from CAPA and the Columbus Symphony, students listen to four minutes of recorded classical music and relaxation prompts at the start of each school day during morning announcements. Part music appreciation and part stress-reduction techniques, the program offers insight on the composers and music history while taking a moment to calm students’ minds and prepare them to learn.
Each week begins with a new classical music composition carefully selected by the Opera Columbus, Columbus Symphony, or CAPA. Selections may reflect upcoming performances of those organizations or works incorporated into their own youth music education programs.

Opera Columbus’ Education + Community Programming is made possible by a gift from James + Luanna Bicknell.
