Hilary Hahn: BYOB(aby) Concert

JS Bach and Mozart


  • Hilary Hahn violin

Join violinist Hilary Hahn in this special solo concert especially for parents or carers with babies under 1 to enjoy in a relaxed and accommodating environment.

“When I was a brand-new parent, I really wanted to take my baby with me to a grownup classical concert, something that I would normally attend myself. I started giving mini concerts for other new parents and caretakers of babies up to 8 months, to give them a break in their day, encourage them to share their love for the arts with their babies, and provide a warm experience for everyone to relax into together. I don't consider these "educational" concerts. They're for the grownups, just... everyone has to bring a baby in order to get in. Audience members are free to chill out, move around, feed, bounce up and down, sit on the floor, or cry. Anything they'd normally do! I perform solo violin repertoire from my regular concerts, and at the end, everyone is invited up to the front to share a final, familiar tune. I love how unbelievably CUTE all of these concertgoers are, and they really seem to appreciate the music!” – Hilary Hahn

Please note this concert is intended for parents with babies under the age of 1 years old only.
