Get to know your SLSO! Enjoy a fun-filled afternoon on Sunday, October 9, at 3 pm with an entertaining 45-minute orchestral concert designed specifically for children ages 5-10. Conductor Norman Huynh and Professor Nigel Taproot from Really Inventive Stuff take us on a tour through Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.
Together we’ll meet each instrument of the orchestra and discover all that they can do. Then boogie in your seats to Leonard Bernstein’s “Mambo” from West Side Story and imagine soaring through the skies with John Williams’ Superman March.
Family Fun at Powell Hall: Doors open at 2 pm for pre-concert activities. Participate in a musical scavenger hunt featuring the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra and get your picture taken on the green screen conducting the SLSO!
Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra is part of a series of Family Concerts held at Powell Hall from the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.
