The Instrument Playground Online is an extension of the SLSO’s popular instrument playground, held before each Family Concert at Powell Hall.

At-home Activities

This new page on the orchestra’s website presents these activities for families. The SLSO is committed to music education and while students are not in a school building, there are still many opportunities to connect with music.
