Great and moving performance that had both my 7 and 10 year old enthralled. Great Orchestra seats as well!

More Information


Based on the book by George Selden

Composed and Adapted by Chris Brubeck


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.

Stay after the 3 p.m. concerts for a Kids’ Chat. Following the 3 p.m. concert, young audience members can ask questions and hear engaging stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with the concert artists.


The performance runs approximately one hour._
