Coming Up: Haydn-Go-Seek Concerts in Southern Minnesota

If the thought of taking your kids to a symphony concert is daunting, or if you’d like to expose your kids to new musical opportunities but the cost has been prohibitive, an upcoming series of free concerts in southern Minnesota is for you.

The Mankato Symphony Orchestra, in cooperation with local libraries, will be presenting its family-friendly “Haydn-Go-Seek” concerts in several locations in the upcoming weeks.  These concerts are free of charge and open to anyone in the community.  The one-hour concerts are ideal for babies and children who’ve never been to a concert before, as they are light-hearted and entertaining and designed especially for families.

Did I mention that they’re free?  When the Symphony presented the Haydn-Go-Seek series last fall, tickets were $10 for adults and $5 for children (which isn’t a bad price as far as concerts go), but because of a grant from the Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund, the upcoming concerts are free to attend.

The schedule for the concerts is outlined below; if you need more information, please contact the local library at the phone number listed.

  • Sunday, April 11, 1:00 p.m.–GFW Elementary School, Gibbon, MN (507-834-6640)
  • Saturday, May 8, 10:30 a.m.–St. Peter (507-934-7420)
  • Saturday, May 8, 1:00 a.m.–New Ulm (507-359-8331)
  • Monday, May 17, 6:30 p.m.–Gaylord Public Library (507-237-2280)
  • Saturday, May 22, 10:30 a.m.–Lake Crystal (507-726-2726) OR Mapleton (507-524-3513)
