My husband and I both enjoy classical music, even though we don’t always listen to it at home. We want to expose our children to the arts, and encourage them to also enjoy classical music. An added bonus is that studies have shown a temporary improvement in “spatial-temporal reasoning” and IQ while listening to classical music – who doesn’t want to be a little smarter, if even just for a while?!
Kids Get In Free to Cleveland Orchestra Summer Concerts at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls
I know, it seems too good to be true, but it IS true – with each paid adult ticket, up to 2 FREE “Under 18 Free” lawn passes can be requested. You can purchase the adult tickets and request the “Under 18 Free” passes online, or at the Blossom or Severance Hall box offices. Click here for more information about the passes.
Why Should Your Family Go?
It’s fun! When we went a week ago, our family of four and my parents packed a picnic dinner, headed to Blossom, laid out our blankets and picnic on the beautiful lawn surrounding the concert pavilion, and listened to “Mozart Under the Stars,” an all Mozart concert. We had a great time. The girls not only benefited from hearing some wonderful music, but also worked on their “good concert goer” skills – listening quietly, clapping at the end of a piece, comparing the different music they heard, and having fun!
Some of the concerts, especially around the holidays, have a free fireworks display after the concert. That’s a lot of fun too.
