The Symphonia’s most popular, interactive program for kids will return for the chamber orchestra’s 2022-23 concert season, after a two-year hiatus. Meet the Orchestra, a hands-on, education program for children ages 6-12, will be held the day of rehearsals for three of The Symphonia’s four concerts. The program will take place on Saturdays – November 12, March 25, and April 29, between 11AM and 12:30PM.
Families and their children are invited to attend the orchestra’s Saturday rehearsal to meet musicians and play various instruments at the Instrument Petting Zoo. Children attend free of charge, and adults are $5 each. Meet the Orchestra is held at Roberts Theater at St. Andrew’s School, 3900 Jog Road, Boca Raton.
The theme of The Symphonia’s upcoming season is ‘Inspired Naturally,’ based on Terra Nostra, an award-winning multimedia symphony by Christophe Chagnard and produced by Earth Creative that combines mind-blowing visuals with the power of symphonic music and explores the impact and challenges of climate change. The December concert will feature the film, by Charlie Spears, as a backdrop to the live performance in a powerful, sensory experience. It will be the world premiere of Terra Nostra, re-written for a chamber orchestra.

About The SYMPHONIA
The mission of The Symphonia is to inspire, educate and engage the lives of our diverse South Florida community through extraordinary musical experiences. Founded in 2004 and recognized as the region’s premier chamber orchestra, The Symphonia’s annual concert series features a repertoire blending classic and contemporary works, showcasing compositions from diverse composers that can best be brought to life by a chamber-size ensemble.
The Symphonia takes great pride in its longstanding community partnerships, including its ‘Building a String Orchestra and Self-Esteem’ children’s program at the Boys & Girls Club in Delray Beach, and with the City of Boca Raton. Additional outreach programs include ‘Meet the Orchestra’ for kids 12 and under, and ‘Box Lunch It,’ a program that allows adult patrons to meet and learn from The Symphonia’s featured soloists and conductors in an intimate, casual environment. This past year, The Symphonia also launched a program to provide complimentary tickets to service organizations such as Boca Helping Hands, Lighthouse for the Blind, Wounded Veterans Relief Fund, and Schwedelson Special Need Department of the Jewish Community Center.
