Sound All Around
Nurture your child’s passion for music! Sound All Around concerts are interactive programs with members of The Philadelphia Orchestra and award-winning storyteller Charlotte Blake Alston. Children listen to stories with music, sing songs, move to the music, pretend to play an instrument, and examine real instruments up close. 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. Named as Philadelphia magazine’s Best of Philly® 2014–Best Music for Kids, Sound All Around takes place in Center City Philadelphia at the historic Academy of Music.
Sound All Around is endowed in perpetuity by the Garrison Family Fund for Children’s Concerts. Additional funding is provided by the Annenberg Foundation.
The 2016-17 Sound All Around performances will be announced in August, 2016. Please check back soon for updates.
