Pajama Jamborees

Free Classical Pops Concerts for Children

Select Wednesdays from 7:00pm – 8:00pm. 

This series of FREE classical “pops” concerts, each one hour in length, is geared to children and their families. Each concert has narration and music selections that are lively, tell a story, and/or demonstrate the colors of the orchestra. Dress is casual. Pajamas, teddy bears, and blankets are welcome for the youngest audience members. The programs are frequently collaborative efforts with guest artists appealing to kids (dancers, costumed actors, children’s performing groups, etc.). Sometimes audience members even get to conduct!
