Get 'Yer Tickets - San Francisco Symphony's Music for Families

Remember how your parents would drag you to the symphony to give you some “culture” and you’d fall asleep (and your dad would snore too)? Well, now it’s your turn. Especially since junior won’t get much of that at school.

The San Francisco Symphony has a Music for Families series, with concerts for kids (recommended age: 7+) in Cupertino and San Francisco. Our friends say it's fun for the kids, and not too long.

My husband is taking our daughter, who claims she’d rather go to the Jungle than the symphony, but she doesn’t get a choice. This concert features selections from Leonard Bernstein, including parts of West Side story, Candide and all 8 movements of Divertimento for Orchestra (which roughly translates to “something hopefully not too long”).

And they have a great website for kids. My son loves it.

When: October 4-5 (Sat/Sun) at 2:00 or 3:00 (depending on location)
Where: San Francisco or Cupertino
Cost: tickets starting at $15 in SF, starting at $35 in Cupertino (kids are half price)
