Children may attend any Sarasota Orchestra concert as long as they have a ticket. It is generally recommended that children be able to sit quietly for the duration of the concert. We do not allow babies or toddlers, unless it is a family concert. All attendees must have their own seat. Symphony staff or ushers will ask parents to take disruptive children out of the hall.
