The Reno Phil offers a free annual Family Concert each fall as a family-friendly introduction to the orchestra and the concert-going experience. The Reno Phil partners with the Terry Lee Wells Discovery Museum and local music stores to provide a variety of pre-concert activities. Children and their families explore the science of music with Discovery Museum personnel and try out various musical instruments at the instrument petting zoo.

This free concert would not be possible without the generous support of The Nell J. Redfield Foundation, Sara & Leonard Lafrance / Educational Pathways, John Dermody Ventures, and The Edwin L. Wiegand Trust. Thank you!

Join us for our next free family concert!
