Young People's Concerts 2014–15: Super Sonic Music Box

Imagine a music box that plays something different every time you open it—a doorway into sounds you’ve never imagined and melodies you’ll never forget. Imagine the orchestra itself as a chameleon of infinite colors, a composer as a wizard transforming the sounds around us, and yourself as the greatest transformer of all, making meaning of everything you hear. Discover the super sounding music box that is the New York Philharmonic.

Each season, the Young People's Concerts take a different approach to explore fundamental musical concepts and the cultural history of classical music. Over the four-concert series, children discover pieces from the entire repertory down to the newest works, while experiencing the inner workings of a major orchestra in a captivating, multimedia format.
