LSO for Families
LSO FOR FAMILIES
Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra is the perfect place for families, from children’s first encounter with live orchestral music to a lifelong love of classical performances! For upcoming community and family events, be certain to follow our Facebook page for upcoming library visits, family festivals, and more.
Our family concerts at O’Donnell Auditorium on the Nebraska Wesleyan campus are a perfect way to introduce children to classical music during an hour-long presentation that includes actors or puppets. This hour-long Sunday afternoon performance provides younger audience members with the opportunity to be exposed to live symphonic performances in a more informal setting. Arrive early – an all-ages family festival with face painting, a musical petting zoo, and craft activities begins one hour before the downbeat!
CLASSICAL & POPS CONCERTS
We welcome children & families to all of our classical & pops concerts at the Lied Center for Performing Arts. We provide special children’s program magazines and crayons with educational activities and a coloring contest. All coloring contest entries are eligible for a free cookie during intermission at the Lied Center Orchestra Lobby.
STORYTIME WITH LSO
Lincoln’s Symphony Orchestra frequently visits local area libraries and schools for storytime, musical instrument petting zoos, short educational skits with guest artists, and much more! Follow our Facebook page to stay up-to-date for an upcoming LSO library event near you. All educational and outreach events are provided free of charge. If your school or organization is interested in hosting an LSO outreach service, please contact the LSO Office at (402) 476-2211.

WHAT IF MY CHILD IS BEING NOISY?
If your child is becoming noisy during Lied Center events, ask any usher to be directed to the glassed-in room at the back of the main floor, where you can see and hear the performance without disturbing your neighbors.
