BSO Music Box
NEW! Recommended for ages 6 months-3 years
Co-presented by Strathmore and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
In collaboration with Levine Music
The BSO Music Box Concerts are the perfect program for your budding music lovers! Each half-hour-long, highly engaging and interactive concert is hosted by Maria Broom and features a small ensemble of musicians of the BSO performing light-hearted classical and children’s songs to develop your child’s musicality, creativity, coordination, and literacy. 30 minutes prior to the concert, the room fills with a range of musical, creative, and fun activities for babies and families.
Doors open 45 minutes before the show. Seating will be available in the back of the house, but we plan to leave plenty of floor space for dance and play! Feel free to bring a floor blanket to get comfy. No strollers, please.
Presale to Circles Members, 2 Stars and above: December 4 at 10am.
Presale to all Stars members: December 5 at 10am.
On sale to the public: December 14 at 10am.
