Long Beach Symphony is launching our second annual Family Concert entitled, Up Up! And Away! on Saturday, February 2nd after a hugely successful first Family Concert in April 2018. Last year’s Family Concert was designed to inspire families to engage with orchestral music while spending quality time together and that’s what was successfully accomplished! The concert nearly sold out the 3,000-seat concert hall with families from all over Long Beach experiencing that magic of a professional symphony orchestra. Entitled We Can Be Heroes!, superconductor Eckart Preu along with super singer, Susan Egan, led a 50-minute interactive, fun and educational performance featuring music by Copland, Beethoven, John Williams, Alan Silvestri, and sing-alongs! Children and families conducted, sang, pantomimed, and danced during the concert and created lifelong memories for them and us!
This year’s Family Concert will be a musical afternoon celebrating things that fly from bumblebees to birds, kites to magic carpets, dragons to aliens, and superheroes to starships! Families will be able to enjoy an afternoon of interactive musical activities, sing-alongs, conducting, dancing, and MORE!
This concert is sponsored in part by a grant from the Earl B. and Loraine H. Miller Foundation.
