Childrens Concert Poster 2014

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!

Special narration by Ernie Stevens. Mr. Stevens has been an elementary teacher for 30 years. His avocation has been involvement with community theatre for over 50 years as an actor, director and stage manager. He enjoys working with young people.

Come join us for a very fun afternoon.

During the summer months, the band can be heard playing traditional outdoor concerts in town parks and commons throughout the region.
