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. For this concert, stay for a talk with Emil de Cou and some NSO musicians.
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.
