FAYETTEVILLE SYMPHONY

Kids Club

COVID-19 Update: Due to the rise of coronavirus cases in Cumberland County, all in-person educational activities have been postponed until March 1st, pending metrics. This decision has been made for the safety of the kids, their families, and the FSO staff. All current members in our educational activities will be notified mid to late February regarding the continuation or discontinuation of in-person educational activities for the remainder of the spring term. That information will also be posted online here.


The Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra Kids Club, for kids age 4-13, helps connect children in the community with the Symphony through exclusive events and learning opportunities.

Membership is free and includes:
 Kids Club Passport*
 Invitation to “Meet the Musicians Ice Cream Social”
 One free symphony ticket per season in exchange for showing a report card with a B or higher in Art or music classes.

In addition to the membership benefits, a Kids Club table will be set up in the lobby at FSO performances where kids will earn stamps while gaining educational information about orchestras and classical music.
