Kids and the symphony don’t always mix, but the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra has arranged to enrich young ears right along with yours. Their Family Concert Series has plenty to offer parents who want to introduce their children to music, with perhaps no performance more fun than December’s Sing Along With Santa. Nothing intimidating or highbrow here — it’s good old-fashioned holiday fun presided over by the Big Guy himself. Besides leading listeners through classic carols with piano accompaniment, he’ll be reading from the poem that made his name, Clement C. Moore’s beloved “A Visit From St. Nicholas.”
Your little ones will get to enjoy some cider and cookies, and you can have a family photo taken with the Man in Red. Whatever else is on their wish list, they’
ll be talking about this one all season long.
$12 adults, $8 kids. Saturday, December 15, 4pm. Bethlehem United Church of Christ. 423 S. Fourth Ave. 734-994-4801. www.a2so.com. —MD
