Holiday concerts are a (wonderful) dime a dozen this time of year.

But musical, seasonal events designed especially for babies, toddlers and preschoolers? Now that is a true Christmas miracle.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is bringing their Music Box Series to downtown Silver Spring’s Civic Building on Saturday, December 12 for two morning little-kid-centric concerts. At both 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., an ensemble of BSO musicians will perform classical holiday songs for children age 0-3 and their parents or caregivers.

These songs about winter, bells and sleigh rides — and the accompanying children-focused discourse — are designed to help littles develop musicality, creativity, coordination and literacy. Sleigh Ride will not only be a holly-jolly memorable event for your family, the performances and learning will delight your budding music lovers.

30 minutes prior to each concert there will be interactive activities especially for young kids. Children will be invited to play and learn through hands-on musical explorations. That pre-show fun begins at 9:30 a.m. (before the 10 a.m. concert) and at 11 a.m (preceding the 11:30 a.m. concert.)

Tickets are just $12 for all ages and can be purchased online. Reserve yours now before they sell out!
