Family Series — Free Concerts for All Ages

Family Concerts are fun, interactive concerts that expose audiences of all ages to the music, poetry, language, history, and customs of many world cultures. Each one-hour concert, performed without intermission, offers audience members an opportunity to hear and interact with distinguished, award-winning musical ensembles in an informal, family-friendly setting. These free concerts are presented in collaboration with our community partners across San Mateo County, including the San Mateo Public Library. Bring the whole family to experience a weekend activity and hear and interact with our musical ensembles in an informal, welcoming setting. Admission is free to these lively, engaging concerts aimed at youth of all ages, families and adult audiences.
