Take story time to the next level with the Orlando Philharmonic! Twice a day on Saturday, May 4, and Saturday, May 11, 2019, the orchestra breathes new life into some of Aesop’s most beloved fables during their final Storytime of the season. The performances will feature beautifully hand drawn illustrations, live music, and fun activities for the kiddos after each concert. Start times on both dates for both shows are 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. at The Plaza Live in Orlando.
A Harmonious Introduction
This event is a fantastic way to introduce young children to the art of orchestral music. They will have the chance to watch as a full orchestra brings classic stories such as “The Tortoise and the Hare” to life in concert and learn about each of the instruments used during the performance, including specialty instruments like the contrabassoon and the harp.
After each Storytime performance, you and your kiddos are welcome to participate in exciting post-concert activities in the lobby. Test your acting skills by performing alongside the musicians as your favorite characters from the day’s story. If the instruments capture your young one’s attention, they will have the chance to play some with help from the musicians from the show. Additional activities include photo opportunities where children can pose for the camera dressed as a musician, and coloring time in their own Symphony Storytime booklet for the young visual artists.
