CSO family matinee

Imagine a child from 1919 meets a child from 2019. Though their lives are very different, they discover joy and meaning in music in the very same ways. This program reflects on the CSO’s century-long tradition of presenting a series of concerts for children, and how composers, musicians and audiences are the architects of the future. Recommended for ages 5 and up.

CSO family matinee

Mussorgsky’s Pictures from an Exhibition, based on a series of paintings and drawings depicting a Russian artist’s travels across Europe, has inspired dozens of arrangements for orchestra. This program leads the audience on a sonic gallery walk, exploring how visual imagery is transformed into sound and the ways that music transforms and transports the listener. Recommended for ages 5 and up.
