Orchestra of Southern Utah
Something magical happens when a young child gets lost in discovery. Connections and memories are made that excite and inspire with hands on art and science. The Orchestra of Southern Utah’s Children’s Jubilee is just the place to experience this world through all of our senses.
A Family Friendly concert at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 10, this jubilee is surrounded by amazing exhibits. The Heritage Theater doors open at 1 p.m. Tickets are $5 for children (of all ages), babies are free. Bring 3 cans of food for our local Care and Share and get one free ticket.
The Orchestra travels the world, no passport needed, to visit some of the 7 Wonders of the World. Destinations include the Pyramids in Egypt with music from the Prince of Egypt and the Great Barrier Reef with Debussy’s illustrious La Mer. The concert itself is just about 40 minutes, perfect for young attention spans and has beautiful pictures of each Wonder to capture the eyes of little ones.
Exhibits starting at 1 p.m. include Cedar Music Store’s Instrument Petting Zoo, SUU’s Animal Ambassadors, and an Astronomy Planetarium. After the concert, the Frehner Museum of Natural History, Ornithology, Arts Fusion, Face Painting, and more join in on the action. Be prepared to try new things, learn about connections, and be filled with wonder. Special thank you to all of our invaluable volunteers who present at each booth!
