What sound does a French horn make? What is the difference between a viola and a violin? How many strings are on a harp?

Children (and their parents and grandparents) have fun discovering the answers to these musical questions and more during twenty-minute Opus Tadpole presentations, entertaining and interactive ways for our youngest listeners to learn about the instru- ments of the orchestra. Grownups may also learn a thing or two!

Opus Tadpole sessions are held on Saturdays at 10:15 a.m. prior to Classical Series final rehearsals.

Opus Tadpole Admission: FREE
