Overnight summer camps across Canada have been cancelled because of COVID-19. Programs, accordingly, are shifting their activities online to provide both children and adults an experience to look forward to.

Bach Before Bedtime (BBB) introduces families to classical music through interactive concerts. It offers a tailored at-home musical education called BBB in a Box for children aged 3-5 and 6-10. Using themed boxes such as Music & the Brain, Music & Emotion, and Music & Theatre (to name just a few), BBB in a Box provides instructional and interactive videos with musicians, activity sheets, supplies for instruments, and Zoom meets that give children a chance to interact with others in the program. All that is needed is an internet connection and a computer or tablet so that media can be downloaded.
