“Relaxed Family Concert: Here, There, Everywhere” at Orchestra Hall

April 7, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Join the Minnesota Orchestra as it flies around the world through music by composers from many different corners of the Earth. Starting at home in the United States, you will hear movements from James Price Johnson’s atmospheric Harlem Symphony. Then head to the Andes mountains in Peru with Gabriela Lena Frank’s Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout. And that’s just the beginning of this musical journey.

Relaxed Family Concerts are designed for audiences of all ages, including individuals with autism or sensory sensitivities. Each concert takes place in an inclusive environment where audience members are welcome to be who they are and enjoy music together with family and friends.

Here, There, Everywhere will feature a variety of music—some soft and some loud—because different audience members like different levels of sound. Review the tip sheet (coming soon) to read about quiet spaces, noise-canceling headphones and other options to tailor the concert experience to fit your family’s preferences.

Come early to participate in lobby activities, including opportunities to try instruments, engage in creative movement, make art, learn more about the program and meet Minnesota Orchestra musicians.

Prepare for the concert experience with the playlist, lobby map, pre-visit story and other materials available approximately 2-4 weeks before the concert.
