1:15-2:15 p.m. Pre-Concert Activities
2:30-3:30 p.m. Concert

Join the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Associate Conductor Andrés Franco, and special guest host Rick Sebak for a musical adventure. We will use our imaginations to soar through outer space, walk with dinosaurs, fly across the sky, explore under water, and more!

This family-friendly concert is for patrons of all ages and abilities and has been designed especially for those with sensory sensitivities, those on the autism spectrum, or anyone who would like to enjoy a concert in a relaxed environment. Guests are welcome and encouraged to respond to the music in their own way, including clapping, moving, dancing, and singing. A quiet space with live video feed of the onstage action will be available for patrons who would like to take a break from the concert, and house lights in the auditorium will be partially raised to facilitate ease of movement.
