Bozeman Symphony’s Free Family Concert Returns
February 11 with Benjamin Britten’s The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra
The Bozeman Symphony’s Free Family Concert returns with The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra February 11 at 10:30 AM and 1:00 PM. Designed specifically for children ages 5-12, this educational concert will be fun for the whole family! Music Director Norman Huynh will take the audience on a tour through Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, music from Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, Stravinsky’s Firebird, and a preview of Lee’s The Fire Beneath, which celebrates Yellowstone’s 150th anniversary.
"The Bozeman Symphony has presented free family concerts in the community for 28 years. It is one of the best ways that we can inspire young people to become life-long lovers of symphonic music, and provide a setting for all to experience the Bozeman Symphony,’ says Executive Director, Emily Paris-Martin. “Young children in the audience are often inspired to play a musical instrument. It is one way that we fulfill our mission to engage, unite and uplift and it is wonderful to see the direct impact this type of performance has on many different generations."
Two performances will be held on Saturday, February 11 at 10:30 AM and 1:00 PM at the Willson Auditorium (404 West Main Street) in downtown Bozeman. These performances would not be possible without strong community support and sponsorship. Bozeman Symphony wishes to thank David and Kippy Sands, Donald B. Gimbel, Gianforte Family Foundation, and Morton H. Meyerson Family Foundation for sponsoring this performance, as well as our Season Sponsors, Stephen Schachman and Ritva Porter.
