The Music Box Series gives your budding music lover the chance to explore music through highly engaging and interactive performances. Each half-hour concert features the musical talents of a small ensemble of BSO musicians performing classical and children's songs to develop musicality, creativity, coordination and literacy.
In partnership with Ready at Five, the lobby will fill with a range of musical and creative activities for babies and families. Be sure to join us 30 minutes prior to each concert for fun and exploration with your child!
Please note: Attendees of all ages are required to have a ticket. Concerts take place in the lobby and seating is unreserved.
Limited seating for those unable to sit on the floor for an extended period of time is available.
