Discovery Concert: Play Ball! Sports and Music

  • Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 2:30 PM
    Merrill Auditorium

What’s a football game without a halftime show? College sports without a fight song? An underdog athlete movie without a triumphant theme? Music and sports collide in this concert to inspire the athlete and fan inside you!

Come early to meet our special guests, Slugger and other athletic stars from Maine! Also meet the stars of our stage and let your kids play instruments with them in our Instrument Petting Zoo! Try our new conductor game, “Podium Hero” where kids learn to conduct live PSO musicians!

All tickets are $10!
