Youth & Family Concerts

Music education has been a priority of the Missoula Symphony since its founding in 1954. Within a decade, the Symphony began performing concerts specifically for children and their families. This tradition continues to the present day, with the Youth and Family Concerts. At the Youth Concerts, students from schools all around Missoula attend a free, one-hour performance during their school day.  The following weekend, the same program is presented as a Family Concert suitable for all ages.

In 2023, our annual Youth and Family Concerts  will be based on beloved children’s author Eric Carle’s book, The Mountain That Loved a Bird. This musical adaptation by composer and Pulitzer Prize winner, Caroline Shaw, is a beautiful story of friendship and renewal. Bring your whole family to experience an afternoon of music, education, enchantment, and audience interaction. Tickets for the family concert are not included in season ticket subscriptions. Tickets are $8.00 per person and may be added to your season ticket order.

In conjunction with this concert, the Symphony invites families to a FREE hands-on, interactive musical experience on Saturday, January 28th, 10am-12noon at the Missoula Public Library. With Symphony musicians as their guides, families will grab an interactive map and take a magical journey to learn more about music, musical instruments, and all that the Library offers. Join Music Director Julia Tai as she “conducts” an orchestra at the library!
