With Symfomania, the Brussels Philharmonic offers a unique formula for (grand)parents and (grand)children (+ 8 years) to experience a concert evening together. While the parents enjoy the first part, the children get to know the music that they will listen to in the second half in the concert hall together with their (grand)parents and the rest of the audience.
After a VIP reception with a drink, the nosey parkers spend the first half of the concert at a playful workshop where they can learn all about the stars of the evening: both the composers and the performers. During the break, they have a look backstage and shake hands with our musicians and conductor. After the interval, they will enjoy the music they will have studied live in the concert hall, together with their parents or grandparents.
We bet you will go home whistling!
