One of our goals for MCC is to help our artists find a new - or wider - audience for their music. Most of our concerts are for adults only (not because of the content, but so that everyone can enjoy the music in a quiet, "listening room" setting). Sometimes, though, this new audience can include children, as long as the child is here to listen to the music and is accompanied by a parent, grandparent, or other adult who will ensure that our house rules are followed.
These are definitely not concerts "for" kids, but they are concerts by an artist whose songs and performances are probably no more than PG-rated. If we designate a show "All Ages Welcome", it means we have checked with the artist to make sure they're ok performing to an audience that might include children (not all are).
Parents & grandparents - at these All Ages Welcome concerts, we ask you to decide whether an artist is appropriate for YOUR children. And, we rely on you to ensure that your children follow our house rules, so that everyone can enjoy the music. And, finally, we rely on you to add a kid-sized artist contribution that you think is fair for your child.
The important thing is this - the room will be filled with music lovers, and it would not be fair to the adults if kids are running around and/or talking during the show. So, if you choose to bring a child to an All-Ages Welcome show, we'll rely on you to make sure they're quiet and that they don't prevent others from enjoying the music.
