Very First Concerts

Talk about young audiences: Last night I received an announcement for a series of concerts aimed at "babies, toddlers, and children," presented by the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra. The programs last 20 minutes & include musical games & short selections of classical music. They will take place in Berkeley & San Mateo in January, & admission is free. The press release mentions "tumbling mats as an alternative to chairs," which sounds like a great idea even for concerts for adults that are particularly long. I might have considered going to Einstein on the Beach if I had a mat to lie on.
