Family Concert #2
Thursday, March 5, 2020
4:00 pm Tompkins County Public Library (TCPL)
LIVE MUSIC and CAPTIVATING STORIES combine in a magical way for kids of all ages as the CCO and Tompkins County Public Library (TCPL) join forces for our Family Concert Series. We’ve loved watching the audience grow and we look forward to reaching even more families in our sixth year of this Series. A different “note-worthy” children’s book is selected for each date, and we feature a variety of instruments to help bring the tale to life with the help of musicians from the CCO.
Children will have an opportunity to try out the instruments following the storytime and performance. You’ll want to bring the entire family to enjoy this FREE event. Be sure to arrive early to get a good seat!
On March 5th, we’ll feature Double Bass Blues written by Andrea Loney and illustrated by Rudy Gutierrez. This charming book won the 2020 Caldecott Medal. Come hear the story of Nic, a young bass player whose life spans two different worlds – his suburban school where he plays in the orchestra to the busy city streets.
Free admission is made possible by the generosity of our sponsors.
