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!

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)!
