Once Upon a Symphony

Once Upon a Symphony


Once Upon a Symphony is more than just a concert - it's a story and an experience, designed with our young concertgoers in mind. Our annual Youth & Family Concert is created in collaboration with the Missoula Public Library Foundation. Bring the whole family and follow along on an adventure through nature with animals, rivers and forests represented by different instruments of the Missoula Symphony Orchestra. Our special guest this year is the composer of Once Upon a Symphony himself, James Stephenson. Additionally, we are again working with local, professional actor Rosie Seitz-Ayers as our Theatre Director. This year's annual Family Concert is full of enchantment, humor, interaction, and education, and we can't wait to see you there.

Tickets for the Family Concert are not included in season ticket subscriptions. Tickets are $8 per person, for all ages.
