It was a little disconcerting that the doors didn't open up until about 5 minutes before the show, but everyone got time to find their seats and take in the ambiance without feeling rushed. Ushers were excellent.

Ate at the KC Cafe on the Terrace Level. Reasonable prices, great food, and no waiting. Ideal for having a civilized meal before the show.

I am so impressed with the NSO for putting on a program tailored to children to get them introduced to classical music. It was fun and charming.

Description

Based on the book by George Selden

Composed and Adapted by Chris Brubeck

 

Come early for the Musical Instrument “Petting Zoo.” An hour before each NSO Family Concert, young concertgoers can get up close and hands-on with the instruments they’ll see played on the stage—from violins, trumpets, and oboes to trombones and percussion—in the Kennedy Center Atrium. A project of the Women’s Committee for the NSO.

Stay after the 3 p.m. concerts for a Kids’ Chat. Following the 3 p.m. concert, young audience members can ask questions and hear engaging stories in an up-close-and-personal talk with the concert artists.

_

The performance runs approximately one hour._
