PBO Education and Outreach

Young People’s Concert

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!

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. See below for current concerts and links for purchasing tickets. 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 .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
