Live performances foster a love of music and every family should attend as many as they can, of all kinds of music. They are memorable family outings and are exciting experiences for all young people. Whether you are at a party or sitting in a great concert hall, the pleasure of seeing and hearing and feeling sound live takes music to a new level.
