Muncie, IN – The entire family is invited to enjoy and experience Classical Kids LIVE! Gershwin’s Magic Key with the Muncie Symphony Orchestra on Sunday, Feb. 25, 2018 at 4 p.m. in Emens Auditorium. Join us for refreshments and an Instrument Petting Zoo in the George and Frances Ball Foundation Lobby following the performance.

“This concert will feature all of George Gershwin’s greatest hits in a unique story format with professional actors,” said Artistic Director and Conductor Douglas Droste. “It will be a great way to enjoy his melodies while learning about his life.”

Gershwin’s Magic Key is an entertaining theatrical symphony concert about the extraordinary life and musical masterpieces of one of the greatest American composers of all time. The story tells of a chance meeting on the streets of New York City between a poor newspaper boy and the great American composer, George Gershwin. The orchestra magically weaves Gershwin’s greatest hits into the drama as the master composer shares historical anecdotes about his life and musical passion.

Tickets for youth (K-12) are $5, Ball State student tickets are free in advance with student ID or $10 at the door and adult single tickets start at $25. To purchase tickets, contact Emens Box Office at 765-285-1539 or visit
