OSBA believes the arts are for everyone, so we are committed to providing family-friendly programming for children of all ages.
Although there is no strict age requirement for our shows, we offer the following suggested guidelines:
- For Masterworks, Entertainment and Dance Series Concerts - At least 8 years old
- For Ballet West Performances - At least 3 years old
- For Utah Symphony Family Concerts - All ages!
Please note that in our Masterworks, Entertainment, Dance and Ballet West performances, disruptive patrons--regardless of age--will be asked to step out. However, our Utah Symphony Family shows are intended to be a safe space for children to learn about the symphony, so we will not ask patrons to leave unless they are highly disruptive. Please feel free to bring children of any age to these Family performances knowing that there is more freedom for them to talk, ask questions, and move around.
