Solar System Symphony combines astronomy and live classical music for an afternoon spent among the stars. Explore outer space as the Portland Symphony performs excerpts from Holst’s The Planets and other orchestral works inspired by the “final frontier.”

Discovery Concerts bring the whole family together to enjoy the music of the PSO. Concerts are approximately one-hour long and take the audience on a mind-expanding and educational journey with the full orchestra! Doors open at 1 PM for games, a hands-on Instrument Petting Zoo, and lots more musical fun!

  • Parking: Parking is available in several nearby lots. There is limited street parking in the area. Accessible parking for patrons with disability permits is available on both sides of Myrtle Street and on Congress Street in front of City Hall. Parking spaces are in high demand in Portland. Please allow sufficient time before the start of a show to find a parking space. View more details here.
  • Where do I go first?: Begin in the lobby to pick up or purchase your tickets from the Box office. If you have already received your tickets in the mail you can go straight into the auditorium. If you are there before 2:00 PM, be sure to check out our Instrument Petting Zoo and Podium Hero!
  • What about snacks and beverages?: You are allowed to bring snacks and beverages for you and your family to Discovery concert performances. Two concession stands on the first floor of Merrill Auditorium will also be open. 
  • What about pictures and video?: Unfortunately, taking video of the PSO musicians is strictly prohibited but photography is allowed and encouraged!
