Introduce the young people in your life to the orchestra with the CSO’s fun and engaging concert series for children. World’s Greatest Synth is a virtuosic concerto for orchestra and animated film. The piece zooms inside orchestral instruments to discover how sound is made and brings the instrument families together in a spectacular, pulsing finale. Perfect for ages 5 and up!
