We offer special pricing for our Family Concerts: $10 per adult, $5 per child ages 12-18 (or college students with ID), and all children under 12 are free!
Starting at 1:00pm on the second floor of the Willard Arts Center, we’ll hold an Instrument Petting Zoo, where children (and parents!) can hold and play musical instruments before seeing them played on stage.
Camille Saint-Saëns procrastinated working on his Third Symphony in order to write The Carnival of the Animals because it was more fun to write.
Please note that this concert is at the Colonial Theater, which means parking downtown. Review the restrictions for parking downtown here so you can plan accordingly!
Be sure to get there early! Starting at 1pm, join us for a FREE Instrument Petting Zoo!
