The National Philharmonic Orchestra, which plays a full season of concerts at Strathmore Hall's Music Center, has a policy of "all kids, all free, all the time" for young people from 7-17. Prices for adult tickets are very reasonable by orchestral standards, it's much closer to home than the Kennedy Center, and the audience is varied (significant numbers of Scout-aged kids respond to this offer) and informal (neckties are definitely in the minority). The National Philharmonic is a professional orchestra with a strong teaching mission.
With so many Scouts who are musicians, this is an ideal family outing AND it meets optional requirement 3a for the Music Merit Badge:
Attend a live performance . . . from any two of the following musical styles: blues, jazz, classical, country, bluegrass, ethnic, gospel, musical theater, opera. Describe the sound of the music and the instruments used. Identify the composers or songwriters, the performers, and the titles of the pieces you heard. If it was a live performance, describe the setting and the reaction of the audience.
You can see their 2012-2013 concert season at http://www.nationalphilharmonic.org/.
