Boca Raton, FL (September 7, 2022)— 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.
