Bring children of all ages to our annual Family Concert, a wonderful introduction to the varied musical sounds and styles of the orchestra. Carnival of the Animals, with the talented young pianists Jacob Kline and Nicholas Kniesche, introduces families to musical depictions of many animals, from lions and elephants to kangaroos and swans.
Then savor the excitement of Dvořák’s Carnival Overture, the spine-tingling delight of Grieg’s In the Hall of the Mountain King, and our annual audience sing-along.
After the concert, children are invited to our instrument petting zoo, where they can greet orchestra musicians and try out string, woodwind, percussion and brass instruments for the first time!
Cambridge Trust Company has generously provided underwriting for youth tickets. Instruments for the petting zoo supplied by Rayburn Music.
