Rhythm and Groove

The musical focus on our Thursday night Children’s concert will be Antonin Dvorak’s “Dumky Trio,” and Paul Hindemith’s wacky & wonderful Trio for hecklephone, Viola and Piano.  This evening of beautiful music and rhythmic energy will be made even more accessible to the young by words from the musicians, active responses, and even dancing.  There will be the most rousing game ever of musical chairs at the end of the concert!  

Both nights will include projects and pizza!  Come and enjoy a truly memorable evening with some of our great MCCMF stars!
