This series brings internationally renowned children’s music headliners to perform with the WSO. Prior to each hour-long concert, the whole family is invited to participate in a series of interactive musical activities. Come meet WSO mascot Manny Tuba and enjoy a fun array of activities.
Children can participate in musical activities such as crafts, rhythm ensembles and round-singing. They can visit the Conducting Station where they will get the chance to conduct a group of musicians or visit the Instrument Petting Zoo to touch and play orchestral instruments. These activities are presented in partnership with Music for Young Children.
Pre-Concert Activities begin at 1:00 PM.
