“A great way to build a future generation that appreciates classical music.”
Our mission to cultivate an appreciation for the classical arts in our community begins with our youngest and most impressionable audiences. Each summer, we present special afternoon performances for families with young children that are designed to inspire the imagination and ignite the creative spirit.

Story Time Concerts

A wonderful example of our children’s programming is our Story Time Concert Series. These 45-minute concerts introduce children ages 4 and above to the string instruments of the orchestra while playing selections of iconic pieces from classical repertoire and telling a popular children’s tale. The program was designed by the nonprofit arts education organization in Philadelphia, Project 440, and was debuted in the SPAC amphitheater in August 2017, featuring performances by five outstanding musicians from The Philadelphia Orchestra.
