Family-Friendly Concerts

Bring the whole family and make new musical memories at the Colorado Music Festival! We consider all of our concerts to be family-friendly, but if you’re not sure where to start, explore our recommendations below. 

Family Concert: Tubby the Tuba (tickets just $10!)

Vaudeville-inspired musical storytellers Really Inventive Stuff uses comedy, props, and interaction to refresh beloved musical classics and enchant audiences of all ages. Their imaginative Tubby the Tuba follows “the adventures of a red polka-dot yo-yo, a dapper bullfrog puppet, and a small piece of ribbon” as Tubby discovers that dreams can come true. Later, Really Inventive Stuff’s “Orchestra-ologist” introduces the instruments “with wit and a wink” as the troupe reinvents Britten’s classic Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.
