A Hogwart's Halloween
Come dressed in costume for a contest, try instruments of the orchestra and enjoy safe trick-or-treating. Then hear a concert with music from the Harry Potter series and more.
This two-act ballet was composed by Tchaikovsky and is based on a story by E.T.A. Hoffmann that centers on a family’s Christmas Eve celebration. A great introduction to classical music and dance for children.
Deck the Halls!
Celebrate the spirit of the season with this annual holiday tradition! The performance includes holiday favorites, Irish dancing, the lighting of the Menorah, and of course – a visit from Santa!
