For elementary and middle School-Age students
All Musical Chairs and Welcome to the Concert programs are currently suspended due to Covid-19 restrictions. Please check back frequently for updates to these programs.
Welcome to the Concert is an interactive education initiative presented in support of the Masterworks Concert Series. Welcome to the Concert features a printed children’s program and intermission workshop designed specifically for each concert with our youngest concert-goers in mind. Together, the program and workshop provide opportunities for young listeners to learn about the music they hear during the concert.
To pick up a Welcome to the Concert program, simply ask an usher upon entering the concert hall. The intermission workshop is presented on Sundays only.
Often a highlight of the 15-20 minute Welcome to the Concert session is a visit with one of the musicians or the guest artist.
Families are also drawn to the HSO’s Masterworks concerts because the Symphony offers a deeply discounted subscription for the entire season. The Musical Chairs program offers a $42 per seat subscription for families with school-age (K-12) children.
