Quotes & Highlights
Come early for the Musical Instrument “Petting Zoo.” An hour before each NSO Family Concert, young concertgoers can get up-close and hands-on with the instruments they’ll see played on the stage — from violins, trumpets, and oboes to trombones and percussion — in the Kennedy Center Atrium. A project of the Women’s Committee for the NSO.
Based on the Original Work by Barbara Nichol

Classical Kids Live brings Beethoven Lives Upstairs, its award-winning story of a young boy whose life is turned upside down when the composer Ludwig van Beethoven moves into his family’s boarding house.
Part history, part drama and all fun, this concert is an excellent introduction to the master’s music, including the Moonlight Sonata, Für Elise, and the great Fifth and Ninth Symphonies.
Appropriate for ages 5 and up.
