Marvel at the wonder of The Philadelphia Orchestra and all its instruments through the help of Ari, a playful ferret who's full of shenanigans. Gregory Smith's The Animated Orchestra invites you to put your imagination caps on, and even be part of the story, as Ari's adventures take him through an old instrument repair shop. All are welcome to this concert, which has been designed to create a welcoming environment for families with children with special needs and sensory sensitivities, and anyone who may benefit from being in a more relaxed environment.
