The next program in the Tucson Symphony Orchestra’s 2011-12 Just for Kids Series on Saturday, March 3 with a performance of “In the Kingdom of Music, Rhythm is King” at the Oro Valley Town Hall, 11000 N. La Canada Drive.
Just for Kids is a popular series of fun, informal, interactive chamber ensemble concerts lasting 45 to 50 minutes. The performances use humor, story-telling, demonstrations and participation to introduce classical music and orchestral instruments in an entertaining and kid-friendly environment to families including those with very young children. The programs are presented on the first Saturday morning of each month from October through March. There is ample, free parking at the Tucson Symphony Center. The Just for Kids performances at the Town Hall in Sahuarita are presented at 10:30 a.m. on the first Saturdays of October, November, January and March.
In Oro Valley, our old friend Tommy Tom-tom is back, this time with his cool and groovin’ buddy Chilling Willie and the TSO Percussion Ensemble. Follow these friends on a percussive exploration where there are no borders!
