Young People’s Concerts are fun, educational, interactive presentations of baroque music suitable for the whole family. Typically an hour long, Young People’s Concerts feature musical selections chosen from a concert program in the current season. Members of the orchestra share interesting information in a fun way to highlight the performance. At the end of the concert everyone has a chance to come forward, ask questions, and explore the instruments. We’re often not sure who is having more fun, the kids or their parents!
Take a one-hour musical journey to Dublin, Ireland and experience the sounds and stories of Dublin Castle. Bassoonist and harpsichordist Peter Whelan joins PBO’s Executive Director Abigail McKee for this interactive program designed especially for young listeners and their families.
Tickets are available online, but can also be purchased at the door beginning 2pm Saturday. Seating is general admission. There is no age limit, so bring the whole family and be prepared to have fun!
Members of BRAVO Youth Orchestras will hold a half hour pre-concert performance from 2:30-2:50 for those who come early.
Young People’s Concerts are open to the public, to school groups, youth groups—to anyone who wants to learn more about music. They are also a great way to introduce young children to the music you love and to the excitement of a live performance.
Tickets for Young People’s Concerts are $5. Seating is general admission. If you are interested in bringing a large school or youth group (10 or more), or have other questions, call us at 503-222-6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
