Family-Friendly Concerts

Bring the kids! We put on a special show just for our younger audience that’s geared to maximize their enjoyment while providing a fulfilling musical program for the whole family. Bobby Collins, our musical director, will take your through a musical journey you’re sure to learn a thing or two from.

During intermissions, you can take a photo with us at our (completely free!) photo booth, or you can try out a musical instrument from one of our very own musicians in our musical instrument petting zoo!

Our family-friendly concerts are shorter in duration to keep things fun for everyone. We’re committed to bringing the enjoyment of the symphony and music in general to people of all ages!

Traditional Symphony Programs

We also put on our full-length symphony production in the more traditional concert format where we typically play an overture, a concerto, and a feature symphony. Don’t worry, you don’t have to dress up — that’s our job!

Each of our programs are designed around a central theme — whether it be the life of a composer or something more abstract. We aim to guide our audience on a journey, using our music to tell the story.
