Marin Symphony Family Concert this Sunday: A Family Valentine
February 9, 2013Posted by pamela |
Get ready for musical family fun at this weekend's Marin Symphony Family Concert, taking place on Sunday, February 10, at 3 pm in the Marin Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium at Marin Center in San Rafael. This year's program presents themes of courage, love and a special Valentine celebration.
San Domenico Alumni viola virtuoso Alexandra Simpson is the guest artist. Music from the hit movie Brave, by Patrick Doyle, is the climax of the concert. The concert is hosted by KDFC radio's Hoyt Smith.
Following the Family Concert, Marin Symphony Youth Orchestra musicians assist aspiring young artists at the traditional Instrument Petting Zoo, sponsored by the Magic Flute, where children are encouraged to try out an instrument on their own.
If you haven’t been to one of the Marin Symphony’s Family Concerts yet, you really owe it to yourself to check one out. We've attended them and had a great time, and the Instrument Petting Zoo is a wonderful bonus that the kids really enjoyed.
Tickets are a bargain: $15 for adults and $10 for children. To order tickets, call (415) 473-6800 or buy in-person at the Marin Center Box Office. Seating is general admission, so get there early for a good spot, as it’s always a popular performance. For more information visit www.marinsymphony.org
