in the Bradley Pavilion of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, 123 E.
State Street entrance. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
The orchestra will welcome spring with lively classical tunes including Strauss’s “Voices of Spring” and “Thunder and Lightning Polka,” and Gliere’s “Russian Sailors’ Dance.” Children in the audience will have an opportunity to conduct the finale, Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever.”
All “Pajama Jamboree” concerts have free admission. Hosted by Education Director Jayne Perkins, these popular programs welcome children and their parents or grandparents to attend in casual dress or pajamas. The audience is invited to bring a blanket and sit on the floor, up close to “meet” the orchestra. Conventional seating is also available. Pajama Jamborees are best suited for children in K4 through fifth grade.
