Symphony Soup

10:15 a.m. & 12:15 p.m.
John DeMain, Conductor

Symphony Soup is the capstone performance of our Up Close & Musical® program and is a special way for students in Kindergarten through third grade to learn about classical music through the experience of a live symphony concert. All season long, the MSO’s Hunt Quartet visits local classrooms throughout Dane County, providing interactive lessons and performances that help children “hunt” for the elements of music.

Symphony Soup conveys the way ingredients, spices, and flavors combine in a delicious bowl of soup, just as musical instruments come together to create beautiful music that can lift and refresh the soul. Bon Appétit!

Would you like to attend?

Seats for the MSO’s youth concerts are $4 per student. Parents, teachers, and chaperones are free of charge with groups over 10 students. Subsidized tickets are available depending on your school’s participation in the free/reduced lunch program.

If you have any questions, please contact MSO Education Assistant Lisa Kjentvet at (608) 257-3734 or lkjentvet@madisonsymphony.org.

It’s a great connection. The children get to see their friends perform. They can hear them make incredible music.
