Toledo Pride....Toledo Young People's Symphony Series

Mommy and Lydia ready to leave.

The inside of the Peristyle Theater at the Toledo Art Museum.

The concert was called Toledo Pride and the orchestra was playing songs written by local artists.  Some were members of the current orchestra.

They are doing a tribute to Jazz Musician Art Tatum.

Here they are playing another song by a local artist who is standing by the flag.

This concert was to teach about the orchestra sections and how they work together to play such beautiful music.

Lydia enjoyed it some, but our seats were right next to the speaker and it was very loud.  She also didn't like where we were sitting because she could not see all the orchestra parts.

We'll be going back in February to see Peter and the Wolf.  It will be fun!


  1. OH! I would love love love to see an orchestra live! My kids would love this also. Toledo isn't that far from me (I think!), perhaps I will have to plan a long field trip in February (or when there is absolutely no snow ;)

  2. Sounds like one very neat experience, and I hope Peter and the Wolf will be just as good.
    Visiting from HHH.

  3. Field trips are my favorite part of homeschooling! We haven't been to an orchestra yet but we took 3 of our kids to see The Lion King earlier this year. They loved the whole performance and had no difficulty sitting through the entire thing (everyone was under 7 yrs.) Now they are campaigning to see Mary Poppins in February.

  4. What a COOL fieldtrip!! I always loved music & I attribute a lot of it to my parents who helped me to appreciate it! I would love for you to link up at my TGIF Linky Party - http://livinglifeintentionally.blogspot.com/search/label/Linkey%20Parties
