The very popular Tiny Tots features early childhood music duo Identical Harmony in an interactive exploration of music and movement.

Series $28.

Discover Music! introduces kids to music by the Seattle Symphony and features appearances by special guests. The series opens October 23 with The Magic Horn, with guest Magic Circle Mime Club. It continues with The Firebird (January 29), Sing Me a Symphony, Dance Me a Movement (February 26), American Music Festival (April 30), and My Musically Colored Days (June 4). Series $65-$90.

Another option for family friendly classical music is the Northwest Chamber Orchestra's monthly Music in the Park performances, held at the Stimson Auditorium at the Seattle Asian Art Museum. Each month, the orchestra focuses on a different composer, from the Ravel in the Park season opener (October 24) to Beethoven (November 21), Bach (December 12), Mozart (January 23), Dvorak (April 3) and Saint-Saens (May 8). Children 17 and under get in free with an accompanying adult. $20. 206-343-0445; www.nwco.org
