Cutting back on music for kids - errata

See posting on March 13th!
I've modified this posting to reflect that the kids/family series needs some attention!

Unfortunately the kids concerts series have not been well attended at all. My friends just heard to the Tall Tales concert on Sunday and said that it was delightful. In particular Ja'Ttik Clark's tuba piece was a real hit. But the Schnitz was less than half full.

It's sad to know that people aren't willing to take their kids to an entertaining one hour program that's reasonably priced. I think that this problem needs some more discussion. There's got to be a good way to reach out to children. Maybe smaller ensembles in other venues than the Schnitz is the way to go. What do you think?
