Mini Maestros is an informal concert series specially created for children ages 2 to 8. These concerts offer an interactive, close encounter with Symphony Tacoma musicians and their instruments. With curriculum prepared by Early Childhood Learning experts, the 45-minute “informances” get kids physically and mentally engaged with the music.

All concerts are held at the University of Puget Sound’s Schneebeck Concert Hall at 2:30 pm on Sunday afternoons. With the exception of Peter and the Wolf, an instrument petting zoo starts one hour before each concert.

Tickets:  $7 children | $10 adults + box office fee ($10 & $13, at the door)

April 19: Peter and the Wolf
Featuring the Full Orchestra
Sarah Ioannides, conductor | Jim Brown, narrator

Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev’s 1936 classic Peter and the Wolf tells the story of a young boy living with his grandfather in a forest clearing, and the adventure he and his animal friends have when a wolf comes through the garden gate. This marvelous work introduces the different instruments in the orchestra, with each character portrayed by a different instrument or group of instruments. Note: No instrument petting zoo for this performance.
