UnTuxed Matinees for Students
Lunch, listen, and learn… all in about an hour!
Recommended for grades 7 – 12
UnTuxed Matinees bring students directly into the WSO Classics experience with a comprehensive and compact symphony experience at an accessible price. Students will have the opportunity to learn more about the orchestra and the repertoire being performed through the provided lesson plan and at a pre-concert chat on the Piano Nobile level, where they can even bring and eat lunch. Students will then move to the auditorium to enjoy a full performance of the featured repertoire. The experience concludes with an onstage Q&A with the conductor. All of this in about an hour!
Some of our UnTuxed concerts are Relaxed Experiences, providing access to exceptional symphonic musical events in an inclusive environment. Click here to learn more about relaxed experiences.
90-minutes from the time doors open to the conclusion of the Q&A. Doors open at 11:30 AM and students can bring their lunch to eat on the Piano Nobile level while they listen to the pre-concert chat which begins promptly at 11:40 AM. The orchestra performance begins at 12:00 PM in the auditorium.
