Family Performances

Family Performances

The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra offers several options for families to attend exciting and entertaining orchestral concerts. While we welcome children aged 3 and up to any orchestra performance, we understand that not all concerts are appropriate for young children. We've chosen to focus a few of our series towards families:

Symphony for Kids

4 Saturday concerts at 2PM

For years families have trusted the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra to present fun and diverse concerts for the youngsters. We suggest that children aged 5 - 12 will best enjoy these concerts. Sponsored by Landmark Homes.

Sunday Showcase

4 Sunday concerts at 2PM

Sunday Showcase concerts feature a soloist from the ESO and a young, promising musician in performances that blend timeless masterpieces and new discoveries. Youth aged 13 - 17 receive special pricing for subscriptions and single tickets.
