Engaging with the Orchestra at Concerts

Have you wanted to feel more connected with the orchestra during concerts?

Follow along with the music score or instrument parts before, after, or even during our performance. Feel like a member of the symphony as you listen for each musical instrument entrance, cue from the conductor, or even how a fast note section really looks on the page. Even if you have never read music before, this is your chance to follow along and see how music is made.

You can also read about the pieces, composers, conductors, and musicians of the orchestra.
