COVID-19 vaccinations or negative test results as well as masks will be required to attend SPCO performances at the Ordway.

Start the Music!

Start the Music! is a musical exploration geared for children ages 3–6 and their families. Music lovers of all ages are welcome to join us for up to 45 minutes of crafts, activities and games, followed by a 30-minute concert. The concert features a small SPCO ensemble that provides musical accompaniment to an uplifting children’s story. This hands-on and intimate concert experience is a perfect way to introduce young children to music.

2021-22 Start the Music Concerts

Due to Covid-19 protocol and capacity limitations, Start the Music will not occur in the 2021-22 season. Please join us for one of our xplorchestra or Family Concerts as an alternative this season.

We look forward to the return of this program in the 2022-23 season.
