Mussorgsky’s Pictures from an Exhibition, based on a series of paintings and drawings depicting a Russian artist’s travels across Europe, has inspired dozens of arrangements for orchestra. This program leads the audience on a sonic gallery walk, exploring how visual imagery is transformed into sound and the ways that music transforms and transports the listener. Recommended for ages 5 and up.

2018/19 is the 100th season of the CSO's concert series for children.
