A musical celebration
for children exploring how music makes you feel.
Sunday, October 5,
* FREE ADMISSION *
Join the Middlesex Concert
Band for its ninth annual children's concert, "The
Power of Music," presented for free. You and your
children can "let it go" as you sing along as the
band performs a medley from the smash movie, Frozen.
Introduce your child to classical music as you listen to the
band perform Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf.
You will hear some old favorites or perhaps make some new
ones, listening to other pieces such as The Children's
March by Percy Grainger, The Sandpaper Ballet
by Leroy Anderson, Russian Sailor's Dance by
Reinhold Gliere, and several more.
One lucky child will win a
chance to interact with the band in a special performance.
Each child who attends will receive a free coloring book and
a seat right in front. Following the performance, children
will have the opportunity to try out the band's instruments!
