One of the great things about the city (close to the little town where we live) is their free symphony orchestra program for kids. About 4 times each year, the kids (and their lucky adult accompanist) are invited to meet one of the musicians, learn about the instruments, and attend half of the concert. It is just the right amount of classical music for kids - long enough to relax into and enjoy, but not so long that they get antsy or bored. Today we heard Mozart - Symphony No. 40, Mahler - Adagietto from Symphony No. 5, and Wallace - Acacia Street. And did I mention it is FREE? This is the third year that we have attended, and although William and Charlie are definitely the oldest kids there, we all still enjoy it. I wonder if I can still bring them when they are teenagers? Because, really, free symphony tickets are all good with me.
