We took our 5 year old for his first concert, a Halloween concert for families. We made a mistake and thought we had 3pm tickets, turns out we had 1 pm tickets. We arrived around 2 pm and it was no problem they graciously got us into the 3 pm show. Not in the seats we purchased but that was fine with us. On the tertace level before the concert they had trick or treating for kids and lots of instruments they could try. The concert itself was very fun and all the muscians were in costume. Afterwards they had a q&a with the conductor which was quite funny given some of the questions from kids. There are drink vending machines one level below the lobby level and they are much cheaper than upstairs. Also, if you go on a sun afternoon, it is possible to find close enough street parking. The garage is around $20.
