However, the main thing I remember was being able to spend time with my parents doing something very special - going out to dinner and seeing a play together.
As a parent, some of the favorite concerts I have attended with Sophia and Olivia have been at the Minnesota Orchestra.
The Minnesota Orchestra.
This is "The Tin Forest" concert we attended.

They do a special student program in which the orchestra plays several pieces and explains parts of them. They also have a visual element to enhance the experience for the children (e.g., dance, large-scale puppetry).
This is the holiday concert at Orchestra Hall called "Sleigh Ride."
In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theater
performed while the orchestra played.
It's from the dream scene in Hansel and Gretel.

Saw the "Percussion Spectacular" at the Minnesota Orchestra.
This was the first visit for the girls to the Minnesota Orchestra, and
they really enjoyed it.

Going to the Minnesota Orchestra over the past few years have provided experiences that the girls and I will remember for years to come.
