My friend Christy emailed me about Koncerts 4 Kids. I have to confess, I had never even heard of these! Despite the annoying K on concerts, these sound really cool.
Koncerts 4 Kids are put on by the Tacoma Philharmonic on select Saturdays at 10:00 or 11:30 in the Theater on the Square in Tacoma. Tickets are a very reasonable five bucks. What I think is really fun is that both before and after the show kids can check out instruments as part of the, “Instrument petting zoo.” My boys did this at the farmer’s market once, and they had a blast (literally)!
The shows themselves are about 40 minutes, and they’ve been specially designed to appeal to kids. If you’ve got a little one who loves to dance, bang on the pots, and otherwise make a production, this would be a fun thing to try.
If you’re ready to jump right in, there is a concert this Saturday.
Readers, if you’ve done this before, I’d love to hear about it!
Thanks for the tip, Christy!
