Young People’s Concert: Celebration

May 4

Celebrate 100 years of Young People’s Concerts™ with madcap sounds, humor, and surprises — and discover how composers throughout the ages have used these tools to comment on important issues of their day. Featuring cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason.

Arrive early for YPC Overtures, on the Leon and Norma Hess Grand Promenade and Hearst Tier 1, where children can try out orchestral instruments and families can engage in crafting and interactive workshops. Activities begin at 1:00 PM.
