Our very popular School Concert series for all of Skagit County's fifth graders is currently in its 12th year. For most students, it is their first time hearing a live orchestra performance; for many, it's their first time in a concert hall. During the concert, the conductor introduces each instrument, adding his signature humor to the event. An educational introduction to the orchestra and classical music, this concert series is a true gem, and unique in our entire region. All expenses to produce the three concerts, including all school bus transportation and cost of McIntyre Hall rental and labor, are covered by Skagit Symphony, thanks to the generosity of our community. Students from more than 26 public schools and private and home school groups attend each year- a wonderful opportunity for students, and a favorite concert for most of our musicians.

Please join us in the lobby as we begin this special event on Sunday, January 27th at 1:30 pm with “Meet the Musicians,” an opportunity to talk with members of Skagit Symphony and see their instruments up close. Following this interactive experience, the orchestra will perform a 45-minute concert program, designed especially for families to inspire flights of fancy and fuel the imaginations of any age!


Our Family Concert is a reserved seating event this season. Tickets are only $1 for children/students, and $10 for adults. Please contact McIntyre Hall Box Office or order tickets online.
