Lollipops performances have been postponed and will return in the Fall

Please check back for updates once schools reconvene.

The Lollipop Concerts are 45-minute “informances” presented annually for pre-school and kindergarten children and are specifically designed to address the following educational goals:

  • Introduce basic musical concepts
  • Provide children with personal contact with the musicians of the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra
  • Provide teachers an outlet to reinforce appropriate listening behavior


"The Beethoven Code: The Case of the Missing Baton"

This year’s concerts revolve around a whodunit theme – THE BEETHOVEN CODE: THE CASE OF THE MISSING BATON. The Maestro’s baton has been stolen just before the big opening night concert featuring Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. The musicians are very upset – they can’t rehearse without their conductor – the conductor can’t conduct without his baton. Your job is to help us answer the clues left by the baton-napper, determine whether foul play is involved, and nab the doer of this dastardly deed before opening night. Veteran detectives and junior investigators alike will be called upon to solve this mystery BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!

The program will feature segments from a number of recognizable pieces and will include demonstrations and featurettes of the different instruments in the orchestra.
