This Halloween, spend a musical afternoon with family and friends for a one-hour full orchestra concert. Our Family Concert brings together children and their parents, family and friends in a fun and enriching musical experience.
There’s dreadful news from the concert hall – the composer is dead! Where were the violins on the night in question? Is the trumpet protesting a bit too boisterously? In this perplexing murder mystery, everyone seems to have a motive, everyone has an alibi and nearly everyone is a musical instrument. Hear for yourself exactly what took place on that fateful, well-orchestrated afternoon.
Costumes are encouraged, our musicians will dress up too! Arrive early for the Instrument Petting Zoo presented by An Instrument for Every Child. In this pre-concert activity, children can try out the instruments of the orchestra.
Child Tickets: $10 +HST
Adult Tickets: $20 +HST
