DSO ANNOUNCES 2019-2020 FAMILY SERIES: TINY TOTS AND YOUNG PEOPLE’S FAMILY CONCERTS
Subscriptions on sale now; DSO’s patron-minded pricing offers tickets for as little as $10 when purchased as part of a subscription
Detroit, (April 1, 2019) – The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) today announced family programming for the 2019-2020 Season, including performances in the Tiny Tots and Young People’s Family Concert series.
Young People’s Family Concerts are family-friendly orchestra performances, featuring the full DSO, designed for audiences age 6 and up. The 2019-2020 Young People’s Family Concert series kicks off with The Ghost of Orchestra Hall, based on legends of a friendly spirit that lives in the DSO’s historic venue, which is celebrating its centennial season in 2019-2020. Other concerts in the series are the holiday-themed Winter Wonderland, the film-inspired Musical Heroes, and a presentation of the narrative concert Gershwin’s Magic Key (a Classical Kids Live! production).
Tiny Tots performances are fun-filled, interactive concerts designed for children ages 2-6 and their families. The 2019-2020 Tiny Tots series includes performances by Miss Paula and the Candy Bandits, Music Together’s® Uncle Gerry and Friends, jazz drummer Sean Dobbins, and the popular duo Gemini. Please note: the DSO does not appear on Tiny Tots performances.
Subscriptions are on sale now for both series, with four-concert packages beginning at just $40. Subscribe online at dso.org/family, call (313) 576-5111, or visit the Box Office in person at 3711 Woodward Avenue (Detroit, MI). Single tickets for Tiny Tots and Young People’s Family Concert Series will go on sale at a later date.
Tiny Tots and Young People’s Family Concert performances take place on Saturday mornings at the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Center in Midtown Detroit. Most performances also include kid-friendly activities in the William Davidson Atrium—like face-painting, an instrument try-out station, and demonstrations from cultural partners like the Michigan Science Center.
