Come Early for the Musical Instrument "Petting Zoo"
Starting an hour before the concert, this hands-on activity gives young concertgoers a chance to get up close with the instruments they'll see played professionally on the stage--from violins, harps, and oboes to trombones and percussion. A project of the Women's Committee for the NSO.
Following each of the 3 p.m. Family Concerts, young audience members can ask questions and hear engaging stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with the artists.
NEW! See the Musicians Up Close on the Big Screen
Beginning this season, all NSO Family Concerts will feature Image Magnification, which projects the music-making onstage onto a giant screen above the Orchestra! It's a great way to see how the artists play their instruments as you listen to the music.
