The Symphony is very excited to be presenting a brand new concert this spring designed entirely for children of all ages and their families. All children will be free with the purchase of an adult ticket. General seating adult tickets are $15 through the Symphony box office at (562) 436-3203.

This family concert will be a celebration of the fun of orchestral music. Broadway star and Long Beach darling, Susan Egan will narrate and lead sing-alongs with the audience and new music director Eckart Preu will conduct the Symphony.

The concert will be preceded and followed by a Musical Playground on the Plaza of the Terrace Theater open to the public. Games, an instrument petting zoo, community performances, and arts and crafts will await the public with food trucks and more! Families from all over Long Beach are encouraged to come and enjoy an experience celebrating the joy of making music together. Come dressed in your favorite hero costume!

This concert is sponsored in part by a grant from the Earl B. and Loraine H. Miller Foundation, Wells Fargo, the Port of Long Beach, and the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center. The concert will be held on Sunday, April 29, 2018, at 3:00 PM at the Terrace Theater.
