Graduate from story time and head to the symphony. This performance eases the transition for your kid with Camille Saint-Saëns' playful Carnival of the Animals. Each section of the symphony evokes an animal—soft violins to represent swans, staccato piano for kangaroos, strong bass notes for elephants. Once they're hooked, they can listen to the classic tale of Babar, set to music composed by Francis Poulenc. Sun 1 p.m.
