Viewing all upcoming Discovery Concerts events

Discovery Concerts give the whole family a chance to enjoy the music of the PSO together. Concerts are an hour long and engage the audience for a fun and educational journey with the full orchestra! Come early for games, a hands-on instrument petting zoo and lots more musical fun. (ages 5-12)

In order for families to attend, ticket prices have to be affordable. This year’s concerts are just $10 per ticket. Even if we sell out Merrill Auditorium (which we have done twice!), ticket revenues cover less than 25% of the cost of the concert. These programs are only possible with additional support from the community. Even a small donation can go a long way to bringing the joy of live music to families!
