Richmond Symphony LolliPops

Children at the symphony … on purpose?!

That’s exactly the idea behind the Richmond Symphony LolliPops! The Richmond Symphony is offering children and parents the incredible opportunity to experience the beauty of concerts in a comfortable environment. LolliPops has been part of the Richmond Symphony since 2009. Lead by Associate Conductor Erin R. Freeman, the hour-long shows introduce kids to the ins and outs of the orchestra, breaking it down so the young audience can grasp how all of the instruments work together to create beautiful pieces of music.

An article from RVA endorsing the show stated, “Freeman really got things moving. She clearly knows her audience and loves what she does for a living; she was charming and expressive and presented concepts in a way that was age-appropriate but not at all condescending.”

Prior to each show, the symphony hosts a pre-concert activity with a “musical petting zoo” where the kids can try their hands at playing some of the instruments they’ll hear during the performance. This will begin when the doors open at 5:00 PM.

This February, the LolliPops are taking a field trip to Charlottesville so that you can take your children on a trip to ancient Arabia with Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade” based on “One Thousand and One Nights.”
