Treat your child to a fascinating introduction to the instruments of the orchestra! Watch and listen as NSO musicians play your favorite classical tunes - and demonstrate how musical instruments work, how they sound, and how they join together to make music. Come early for some hands-on fun with the instruments!
"Custard the Dragon"
Collaborative Project with YPF and NSO Education
Ogden Nash's delightfully nonsensical tale about a little pet dragon launches a wild and uproarious musical adventure! Custard may be a dragon, but he's so cowardly that he cries for his "nice safe cage." So what happens when a pirate comes into the house? Will Custard the Dragon save the day? The National Symphony Orchestra Chamber Ensemble, hilarious songs, and live actors bring this story to magical life.
