It depends on the concert and on the age of your kids. Many standard-length classical concerts may be difficult for small children because they require an attention span that may be beyond what a child can maintain. Our free community concerts and Education Concerts are a great way for families (including children of all ages) to enjoy classical music together. Your kids or grandkids may also enjoy the concerts in our Indiana Trust Pops Series, which include a holiday concert, movie music, and more!
To further build your children’s interest in classical music, play classical music at home or in the car. When they are old enough to sit quietly for an extended period, you may wish to bring them to the first half of a Classical concert. In all cases, it’s a good idea to check with the orchestra directly about the appropriateness of the concert you plan to attend with your kids. And don’t forget that children in grades K-12 can get free tickets to our subscription concerts!
