Sound All Around
In Center City at the Academy of Music Ballroom
PNC Grow Up Great
Saturdays and Mondays at 10 AM and 11:15 AM
Nurture your child’s passion for music! Sound All Around is a great introduction for youngsters and features members of The Philadelphia Orchestra and award-winning storyteller Charlotte Blake Alston.
Each concert introduces the audience to a member of the string, woodwind, brass, or percussion family, and the final concert features all of the musicians from the season playing together in an ensemble. Concerts are 45 minutes long and a great way for kids, families, daycares, and school groups to have fun with music.
For a second season, we specifically welcome children with sensory sensitivities and their families to our relaxed sensory friendly Saturday performances. Our aim is to create a safe and accepting environment where children, including those on the autism spectrum and with other developmental disabilities, and their families can experience live music together.
Join us for the fun and interactive Sound All Around Ensemble Concert. Clap, stomp, sing, and dance with members of The Philadelphia Orchestra and famed storyteller Charlotte Blake Alston as we learn about, and celebrate, music and the orchestra. You'll get an up-close look at all the special instruments we've featured this season, and get to hear how they create beautiful music when played together.
The Sound All Around concert series is presented by PNC Grow Up Great and is endowed in perpetuity by the Garrison Family Fund for Children's Concerts.
