Winter Wonderland

Sun Jan 29, 2023

Orchestra Hall

~1 hr

From chilly jingling sleigh bells of the north to tango-tinged sunny southern sounds—winter-themed music from around the world offers a beautiful way to learn each other's traditions.

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. Winter Wonderland 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.
  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!
