Capital City Symphony’s ever popular Family Concert is back at the Atlas Performing Arts Center (1333 H Street NE) with two shows on Sunday, November 22nd at 2:30pm and 4:30 pm. Ever year the concert attracts families seeking out engaging, educational, and fun activities. This year’s concert features: Bruce Adolphe’s Three Pieces for Kids and Chamber Orchestra, an interactive journey through the orchestra; Benjamin Britten’s Soirées Musicales (1933), an energetic romp that references themes by the composer Rossini; and Brahms’ Hungarian Dances Nos. 5, 6, and 7, brief and lively works likely to appeal to all ages.

Tickets will run you $25 for adults, and $15 for students, but are completely free for children. Show up early because there's an instrument petting zoo for the kids 30 minutes prior to each performance. Tickets are available through the Atlas website or at the box office.
