Milwaukee's Festival City Symphony starts its season's Pajama Jamborees in late September.  The free events are held on selected Wednesdays from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at either Vogel Hall or the Bradley Pavilion of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.

With various programs, the Festival City Symphony fulfills its original mission to provide low-cost access to quality classical music.  Its Pajama Jamboree series of three classical "pops" concerts, each one hour in length, is geared to children and their families.  Each concert has narration and music selections that are lively, tell a story, and/or demonstrate the colors of the orchestra.

Dress is casual.  Pajamas, teddy bears, and blankets are welcome for the very young, especially for a spot on the floor directly in front of the orchestra.  Conventional seating is also available.

The Pajama Jamborees are frequently collaborative efforts with guest artists appealing to youngsters -- dancers, costumed actors, and children's performing groups, for example.

They are supported by Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.
