Free Classical Pops Concerts for Children

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

Our 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!


 All “Pajama Jamboree” concerts have free admission. These popular programs welcome children and their parents or grandparents to attend in casual dress or pajamas. Pajama Jamborees are best suited for children in K4 through fifth grade.
