Composer, teacher and performer Doctor Noize teams up with orchestras large and small to interactively inspire kids and newcomers to explore the worlds of classical music and the symphony in the hippest, most inclusive way imaginable.

  • The symphony concerts we performed with Doctor Noize were spectacular! I have never seen kids respond with so much enthusiasm to a classical music concert. He's fun, funny and irreverent. His gift for inspiring kids is unparalleled.

Award-winning composer, teacher and performer Doctor Noize graduated with Distinction and Honors studying classical music at Stanford, but don’t let that fool you — his Symphony Shows are crazy, interactive fun.  Audiences sing, dance and connect with the orchestra, and leave wanting to explore more. Two programs are offered:  Phineas McBoof Crashes the Symphony, from the acclaimed musical recording of the same name, and Doctor Noize Goes Bananas!, taking kids on a tour of music history to decide that the future of orchestral music is gonna be a wild ride.

But... are these shows are impactful beyond the spectacle?  Pictured is Eric Whitmer, chosen from 1,000 kids at a Doctor Noize Symphony Show in Chico, CA to come onstage and learn to conduct the orchestra on the spot.  Eight years later, Eric contacted Doctor Noize.  He said he had learning differences, and decided, on that day, he would go to a top college and join an orchestra.  Eric graduated from a Top 15 academic school and became the timpanist in the very orchestra Doctor Noize brought him up to conduct as a kid:

  • I still credit Dr. Noize as being one of the foundational experiences in my musical journey... Truly your program changes lives! Who knows what I'd be majoring in at Vanderbilt if not for Phineas McBoof!  I’m majoring in percussion performance with a minor in business, focusing on arts administration and sustainability... Whoo boy that’s a mouthful!

  • Orchestral music is the most adventurous and colorful music in the world.  Kids and newcomers are the most adventurous and colorful audience in the world, because their minds are not yet made up.  As young fine arts audiences in the digital age are increasingly elusive, it’s imperative that those of us who want to preserve the art form we love design and perform symphony shows that specifically appeal to new audiences.
