Free Classical Pops Concerts for Children

We look forward to performing free Pajama Jamboree concerts when a safer concert environment becomes possible again. Please stay tuned for further updates about this season’s concerts in the coming months.

Select Wednesdays from 7:00pm – 8:00pm.  Doors open at 6:30pm.  No registration required.

Bradley Pavilion of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. PLEASE NOTE: Enter through the main entrance, 929 N. Water Street. If you park in the Marcus Center lot, you are welcome to use the third level skywalk. This series of three 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, especially for a spot on the floor directly in front of the orchestra. Conventional seating is also available. 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!
