Symphonic Chills and Thrills

Sun Oct 30, 2022

Orchestra Hall

~1 hr

Composers have many tricks to makes things chilling—tempo and dynamics to chase, or xylophones to rattle our bones. This lively and mysterious program will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Our Relaxed Family Concerts are designed for audiences of all ages, including individuals with autism or sensory sensitivities. Each concert takes place in an inclusive environment where audience members are welcome to be who they are and enjoy music together with family and friends.

A Few Things to Know

  1. Symphonic Chills and Thrills 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 (below) 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.
  2. Come early to participate in lobby activities, including opportunities to try instruments, engage in creative movement, make art, learn more about the program and meet Minnesota Orchestra musicians.
  3. Prepare for the concert experience with our playlist, lobby map, pre-visit story and other materials. Scroll down this page for those resources!
