Lunar New Year for Families

with the Minnesota Orchestra

Sun Feb 6, 2022

Orchestra Hall

Celebrate the Lunar New Year with the Minnesota Orchestra and welcome the Year of the Tiger with a vibrant event that draws upon cultural traditions past and present. This one-hour Relaxed Family Concert is designed for audiences of all ages and abilities, including individuals on the autism spectrum and those with sensory sensitivities. Come enjoy music with family and friends in an inclusive environment where everyone is welcome to be who they are!

We require proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a dated negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within the last 72 hours prior to entrance or event for anyone entering Orchestra Hall, including children. Adults must also present a photo ID. (“Full vaccination” means your visit to Orchestra Hall is at least two weeks after your final dose of a vaccine. Negative LFTs and antibody/serology tests will not be accepted.)

Be mindful of testing site hours and test result turnaround. If you are unable to complete testing or don't get your results back in time, we will issue a refund. View safety protocols

Masks are required inside Orchestra Hall. Read this helpful resource about mask-wearing from the Autism Society of Minnesota.

A Few Things to Know

  • Lunar New Year will feature a variety of music—some soft and some loud—because we know that different audience members like different levels of sound. Review our tip sheet (coming soon) to read about quiet spaces, noise-canceling headphones and other options which are available for tailoring the concert experience to fit your family's preferences.
  • Come early to participate in lobby activities, including opportunities to try orchestral instruments, engage in creative movement, make art, learn more about the program and meet Minnesota Orchestra musicians.
  • Prepare for the concert experience with our playlist, pre-visit story and other materials (coming soon)!
  • Kids' tickets (ages 6-17) are just $12. Choose "Child" price type when selecting seats. Advance student rush also available.
