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 an hour of games, a hands-on Instrument Petting Zoo, and lots more musical fun!

DESIGNED FOR AGES 4-12, BUT ENJOYABLE FOR ALL!
  • 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!
