Hamilton Philharmonic has teamed up with Marz Homes to present the Marz Homes Family Concert Experience on January 30th, 2016. This day brings families together to experience a full day of hands-on musical activities and crafts, as well as a one-hour concert designed for children age six and up.
The Marz Homes Family Concert Experience is a new symphony-themed interactive initiative. It features a one-hour concert, The Legend of the Northern Lights, which includes spectacular on-screen visuals to accompany the music. This brings science and music together to encourage children to explore the world around them. The Legend of the Northern Lights premiered in August 2014 in Chicago with the Grant Park Orchestra and will premiere in Canada with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra in November 2015. The HPO has gone beyond the stage to also offer a full day of interactive activities for children. These activities include an instrument petting zoo, found sound station, musical storytime, as well as craft and a make-your-own instrument stations.
Tickets are available for the full day, including a family package, or just for the concert. Families have the opportunity to purchase a full-day pass (lunch and parking included) or tickets to the concert only. For tickets visit hpo.org or call the HPO Box Office at 905-526-7756.
