Hey, Tacoma, grab your calendars! You have one more chance this season to take your kids to Mini Maestros, a concert series from the Tacoma Symphony, just for kids 2-8 and their favorite grown-ups.
We heard from lots of readers who loved the first three. The finale is Sunday, May 22nd, and it’s the beloved Peter and the Wolf, with a full orchestra.
Each of the shows in the series has been designed by early childhood education experts (You know music is brain building stuff, right?). Shows are lively and interactive and a just-right length for younger listeners. It’s a perfect way to introduce your children to classical music and get them thinking about playing instruments.
Shows are at UPS and tickets are a super reasonable 7.00 for kiddos and 10.00 for grown-ups. Oh, and I love that they’re on Sunday afternoons, which is typically a really slow time if you’re looking for family fun (trust me).
Tickets are available through the box office 591 5894 or at the door. It’s a big venue so they don’t typically sell out, but they do get pretty full, so I’d go on the earlier side.
Note that for Peter and the Wolf, there is NOT an instrument petting zoo first, so you don’t need to go early. There WILL be plenty of interactive fun in this perfect introduction to instruments and music!
