    What is the Family Series?

    Each season, the Mankato Symphony Orchestra gives four shows designed to introduce young children to the delights of classical music. Each show is hosted by an actor in costume and the MSO String Quartet. They are a truly fun experience no matter your age, and it's a great way to get your children interested in music.
