Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts

Student Matinees

Each year, we offer select student matinee performances. These concerts provide a unique opportunity for students and teachers to experience a performance and participate in a talk-back with artists about their work.

All matinees are approximately one hour long, begin at 11am, and include curriculum materials provided to teachers in advance of the performance. Tickets are $10 per person per performance, including students and chaperones.

Please check back soon for the next student matinee.



Jon Batiste
Jazz is: Now!
featuring Jon Batiste


Tue, Feb 11 | 12pm | Perelman Theater
> Request tickets!

Jazz Is: Now! is an interactive, educational presentation that has evolved into a tremendously successful and totally original series headed by National Jazz Museum in Harlem Artistic Director-at-Large Jon Batiste. Audience members participate throughout the evening—playing, singing, dancing, and actually directing the music. Now you can experience Jazz Is: Now! first-hand at the Kimmel Center. You'll never know who or what to expect!
