Family Concerts at Powell Symphony Hall, St. Louis City

Location: 718 N. Grand Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63108


I took my kids here when they were 6 and 8 and it was so much fun. On select Sunday afternoons, the 3-concert Family Series offers a mix of fun, thematic orchestral music to engage and entertain children ages 5-12 and their families. Each concert is 45 minutes in length showcasing a one-of-a-kind live musical experience to share and create magical memories together. The concerts start at 3:00, but get there early for the instrument playground. You can explore, touch and play instruments of the orchestra. Starting at 2:00 p.m. before each family concert, families can discover many different orchestral instruments in this hands-on experience located throughout Powell Hall.

We saw Lemony Snicket's the Composer is Dead. Coming up in 2019 they have Cinderella and Carnival of the Animals. Tickets start at just $8 per person! Powell is a beautiful old building and if your kids can't sit still it's always nice to walk around in the halls and take in the beauty of the old place.

Strings section included a violin, a viola, and a cello. 

Woodwinds area included a clarinet and a flute. 

Percussion area with cymbal, triangle, and drum

Brass area- don't worry they sanitize the mouth pieces after each child. 

They color coordinate all the musicians to show the kids where each section is located in the orchestra. Strings in front, brass and woodwinds in the middle, and percussion in the back.

We were in the very back and the seats were still great. My kids loved learning about the symphony!
