Young People's Concert

Dan Brown’s Wild Symphony

Sun, Mar 3, 2024 Roy Thomson Hall

Embark on an enchanting musical journey with your whole family as Dan Brown, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Da Vinci Code, unveils his latest surprise: Wild Symphony. Create core memories as you introduce your children to a love of orchestral music and live performance. This concert is particularly great for ages 4–8. 

Join us for a fun-filled afternoon of edutainment, starting with our pre-concert activities!

We're bringing a whole new meaning to "early bird"! Come an hour before the concert to meet a real-life bird of prey with educators from the University of Guelph’s Wild Ontario. Plus, don’t miss our pre-concert music performance by Brampton’s Youth Orchestra, the Rosebuds, as they play a delightful arrangement of Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals. Mabel’s Fables, one of Toronto's most beloved independent children’s bookstores, will be onsite to sell copies of Dan Brown’s Wild Symphony.

Then, join us on a wild ride in the Roy Thomson Hall auditorium!

From the joyous rhythms of “Bouncing Kangaroo” to the mysterious melodies of “Wondrous Whale” to the hair-raising harmonies of “Brilliant Bat”, the nearly two dozen movements of Wild Symphony correspond to an animal featured in the picture book. Wild Symphony reveals the author as a lifelong musician and composer who counts himself among those inspired at a young age by Peter and the Wolf, The Carnival of the Animals, and The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra. “My intent with Wild Symphony is to provide a fun, fresh opportunity for families, parents, children, and people of all ages to reconnect with the magical experience of classical music,” says Brown. Wild Symphony is a very wild symphony indeed, and offers a refreshingly real experience for children of all ages.
