Designed for children ages 5 to 11, these Saturday concerts offer the indescribable experience of the Los Angeles Philharmonic with the fantasy of theater to introduce kids to the joys of classical music. Each concert is preceded by a choice of art workshops. This series includes music from Stravinsky, Dvořák, Mussorgsky and Esa-Pekka Salonen. These Saturday concerts mirror the programs from the SY1 series but are offered on different dates.
