Very Young People's Concerts® 2013–2014: At Home with Philharmonic Families

This season’s series, At Home with Philharmonic Families, introduces kids to the Philharmonic’s strings, brass, and percussion families. Each concert explores basic musical ideas through movement, singing, and humor, with the Philharmonic’s irrepressible Associate Principal Viola Rebecca Young as your host — along with more of violist Dorian Rence’s stories of Philippe the Penguin.
