Families and Learning

​Inquire. Explore. Listen. Collaborate.

Learning happens not just in the concert hall through imaginative performances, but also through participatory experiences that invite audiences of all ages to personally connect with the music. Composition-related activities — creating music — is core to our program design. From pre-K to elementary, high school through adult, learning happens at the Symphony.
