Family Music Fest
May 14, 2016
Join Inside the Orchestra, Neighborhood Music Stapleton, and Central City Opera for a day of music and creativity for families with children of all ages! In the morning, Inside the Orchestra will present Tiny Tots. Tiny Tots gets children truly inside the orchestra by seating the audience on the floor and
surrounding them with a 30+ piece orchestra. Designed for children six and under, this 45-
minute program gives young ones the chance to interact with the conductor and the
musicians and learn about the instruments in the process. Each performance will feature modern dancers from Hannah Kahn Dance, an opera singer from Central City Opera, and music ranging from modern favorites to classical hits.
Throughout the afternoon there will be carnival games and a bounce house, free music lessons courtesy of Neighborhood Music Stapleton, an opera booth and so much more. Then at 1:15, Central City Opera will present In My Own Words/En Mis Palabras, a 45-minute performance geared towards adolescents and their families. This English language performance addresses the universal theme of finding your voice and learning who you are.
Tickets are available for the full day or just the mornings or afternoon sessions. Those who purchase a Full Day ticket will be able to come and go throughout the day.
