Come one and come all, for we want you to hear, a glorious sound that will make you all cheer! Dr. Seuss’s The Sneetches will bring you great glee, and our buddy Michael is one you must see. Clever music and rhymes will be accompanied by Dr. Seuss’s illustrations projected above the Orchestra. And you won’t want to miss other playful pieces, including “Entrance of the Gladiators” and the “Dance of the Comedians,” because there is fun to be done!

Curious about the clarinet? Ever wanted to try the trumpet? How about bowing a double bass? See, touch, and play the instruments of the orchestra in their natural habitat beginning at 10 AM Saturday, February 7.

You and your family are invited to participate in this free interactive experience and explore instruments like the ones that will be played onstage. Knowledgeable volunteers will be on hand to guide your exploration, answer questions, and help you hold and make a sound on various instruments from all four families: woodwinds, brass, strings, and percussion. Bring your camera’s and join us for this fun pre-concert activity.
