Presented by the Brevard Symphony Orchestra, this fun, family-friendly event will feature live music, children’s activities, ticket giveaways and interactive discussions. The event also marks the start of the BSO’s annual book fair which raises money for the Orchestra’s H.O.P.E. fund. 

Highlighting the event will be an interactive discussion with BSO Music Director and Principal Conductor Christopher Confessore. This year, Maestro will be joined by author Charlie Harmon. Mr. Harmon served as Leonard Bernstein’s assistant and worked with Mr. Bernstein as his social director, gatekeeper, valet, music copyist, and itinerant orchestra librarian. Mr. Harmon’s book about his time with Leonard Bernstein, “ON THE ROAD AND OFF THE RECORD,” will be available for purchase during the book signing.

In partnership with Barnes & Noble, the BSO will also host a fundraising book fair which begins with each “Sunday with the Symphony” event and runs for five days after. By using BSO book fair voucher, Barnes & Noble will contribute a percentage of every sale to the BSO. Vouchers can be found on the BSO’s website at and can also be used to shop online at

No tickets are required.
