GUIDE FOR FAMILIES


Q: Should I bring the kids?

A: We strongly recommend the minimum age of six for a pavilion seat. There is no age limit for the lawn. Every child is different; you know your child best and can judge their readiness for experiencing a concert at Bravo! Vail. Most importantly, if you attend a concert and find that your kids are too young, don’t worry! Try again in the future—later in the summer or the following year.

Younger kids will enjoy our Free Family Concerts, which are shorter and have a more relaxed atmosphere and more to look at on the stage, and our Little Listeners @ the Library series.

Q: What is the age limit for bringing my child to a concert?

A: There is really no “right” age for bringing your child to a concert. There is no age limit for the lawn, and we recommend audiences are 5 or older for sitting inside the pavilion. However, you know your child best and can judge their readiness for experiencing a concert at Bravo! Vail. Most importantly, if you attend a concert and it isn’t a great experience, don’t worry! Try again in the future—later in the summer or the following year. 

Q: How do I know if my child ready to attend a Bravo! Vail concert?

A: Go through the “before the concert” activities and use your child’s interest and focus to gauge their readiness. Remember, all kids are different and will experience classical music in different ways…and that’s OK!

Q: How else can I introduce my child to classical music?

A: Bravo! Vail has many programs for kids. Check out all of our opportunities for kids and families here.
