The Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra is a Family Favorite 

As a parent, one of my goals was to expose my children to many diverse experiences – including the arts. I knew how to check other experiences off the list, but I struggled with how to get them involved and exposed to age-appropriate classical music. Luckily for me, when our family moved to Kalamazoo, I learned about the Family Discovery Series offered by the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra (KSO).

The KSO offers performances tailored for children and families. This Family Discovery Series provides children not only a fun and unforgettable musical experience, but also interactive pre-concert activities such as Meeting the Conductor and an Instrument Petting Zoo.

Performances are in the afternoon and ticket prices for the Discovery Series are affordable, only $5. 

 

Beethoven Brought to Life

Beethoven Lives Upstairs will be held at the Chenery Auditorium. The production features an exchange of letters between a child and his Uncle about a “madman” who moved into the family above their home, all with the music of Beethoven. This production will feature Daniel Brier as the Conductor.

Tickets can be purchased here or by calling the Miller Auditorium box office at 269-387-2300.
