The Great Falls Symphony Association is proud to present a FREE Family Concert on Saturday, October 30, 11:00 AM at the Mansfield Theater.


Bring your children to the historic Mansfield Theater and introduce them to the magic of a live symphony experience! No tickets are required to attend this concert. Be sure to arrive in time to find a seat.


The Free Family Matinee is an extension of the Youth Matinee Series which is offered every year to area students in the public, private and home schools. Now, because of the generous support of Brad Talcott and Linda Caricaburu, we are excited to continue this concert series with the public.


In order to help make the experience more understandable and entertaining, the Family Matinee is presented in a fun and interactive learning environment. Lights, actors and stimulating visuals enhance the one-hour concert experience. Study materials are also made available through the Symphony website.


Wear your best Halloween costume to the concert and we will see you there!   


This concert will be presented in a short, one-hour format without intermission.
