Looking for a unique way to spend some time with the kids? The Detroit Symphony Orchestra hosts a Young People’s Family Concerts series at 11 a.m. on select Saturdays throughout the year. It’s especially for kids ages 6 and up.
Here’s what you’ll see during the 2016-17 season:
Oct. 29: Halloween at Hogwarts. Assistant Conductor Michelle Merrill and the DSO play tunes from the Harry Potter movies – and more. Don your cloak and participate in the costume contest. Swing by before the show for special activities.
Nov. 26: Tubby the Tuba. Dennis Nulty, the DSO’s principal tuba, along with narrator Stephen Henderson and the brass section of the DSO, tell the story of Tubby the Tuba.
March 25, 2017: Tchaikovsky Discovers America. This theatrical performance allows show-goers to travel with Tchaikovsky to New York for the opening of Carnegie Hall, which was in 1891.
