The BSO has come up with an ingenious way to get kids to listen to and appreciate orchestral music: Put a circus over it!
The Cirque de la Symphonie—which is not affiliated with Cirque du Soleil, but comes from the same European cirque tradition—pairs holiday music with aerial acrobats, strong men, contortionists, jugglers and other performers. It sounds like a match made in heaven, both for parents and kids.
The BSO has graciously offered to give away four tickets to a matinee performance on either Wednesday, December 7th or Friday, December 9th (winner's choice) to one of our readers! To be eligible to win, please both "Like" Learning to Crawl on Facebook (there's a button on the right of this page) and leave a comment here with your favorite holiday season tradition. The contest is open until noon on Monday, December 5th, and I'll announce a winner soon thereafter. Good luck!
