Family Series

GCO Family and Children’s programming debuted in the fall of 2012. These matinee programs feature pre-concert opportunities for musical exploration in our instrumental “petting zoo” and craft projects designed for children. Partnerships with visual artists and a special relationship with author Anna Celenza provide children of all ages the opportunity to engage with great music in a multimedia environment. These programs cover a wide range of literature from classic family fare such as Peter and the Wolf and Carnival of the Animals to cornerstone works such as Haydn symphonies and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to genre blending works by George Gershwin and Duke Ellington.
