4:00 pm Tompkins County Public Library (TCPL)  


Get swept up in the magic created by great stories and live music as the CCO and Tompkins County Public Library (TCPL) join forces for our third annual Family Concert and Storytime.  Encouraged by the tremendous turnout at our first two events, we’ve added a second Family Concert this season!

This fun-filled, musical storytime will bring to life the acclaimed picture book, “The Remarkable Farkle McBride” by John Lithgow.  “The Remarkable Farkle McBride” introduces readers to a fickle yet lovable child prodigy who brings the sounds and rhythms of orchestral instruments to life.

This storytime will include a quartet of CCO musicians and will be narrated by newly appointed CCO Music Director Cornelia Laemmli Orth.  Young audience members will have an opportunity to try out an assortment of instruments following the performance so be sure to bring the entire family!

Free admission is made possible by the generosity of our sponsors.
