The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) welcomes kids of all ages and their families for two Halloween-themed events: a Tiny Tots performance titled “Rock O'Ween” featuring Miss Paula and the Candy Bandits, and a Young People’s Family Concert presentation of “Halloween at Hogwarts,” featuring the DSO conducted by Kelly Corcoran. 

The program will include music from the Harry Potter series film scores, as well as other magical tunes.

Both performances take place Saturday, October 27: Rock O'Ween at 10 a.m. in the Peter D. and Julie F. Cummings Cube, and Halloween at Hogwarts at 11 a.m. in Orchestra Hall. Both venues are located within Midtown Detroit’s Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center.

A variety of kid-friendly activities will take place in the William Davidson Atrium for audiences to both concerts, including an airbrush artist, instrument tryout stations, arts and crafts, and more. And the annual costume contest is back, with winners announced during both the Tiny Tots and Young People’s Family Concert performances.

Tiny Tots performances are fun-filled, interactive concerts designed for children ages 2-6 and their families. Young People’s Family Concerts are family-friendly orchestra performances designed for audiences age 6 and up.
