Family Concert
Music for Families at the S.F. Symphony

April 6, Saturday, all day at Ardenwood Historic Farm: Tartan Day Scottish Fair. Ach, ye still can’t beat thepipes for an ear-splitting racket that’ll give you a prize headache. Scottish dancing, kilts, activities, the whole magilla. Plus, you can teach the kids what haggis is.

April 6, Saturday, Davies Symphony Hall, 2 p.m.: San Francisco Symphony’s Music for Families Concert. With the San Francisco Symphony back to work, this concert is on as scheduled, although you’d be excused for having forgotten about it. It’s one of the best of this series, however, dealing with one piece, Dvořák’s beloved Symphony No. 9, “From the New World.” This is a concert about how to listen, but between the stories of Dvorak’s life and the infectious tunes, the kids probably won’t notice that.
