Children’s Concert in Greenwood
Sunday, September 24, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
This concert in the park starts at 4:00, which is EARLIER than our usual performance time!
Since the amphitheater grounds are undergoing some awesome renovations, the Children's Concert has been RELOCATED to Greenwood's Northeast Park, near Northeast Elementary school. (See map below.)
Kids from 1 to 100 will enjoy this live concert in the park, featuring live performance of musical arrangements loved by kids and grownups alike. With fun, games, prizes, and the opportunity to play real musical instruments, this this annual concert is for fun for all ages!
Free refreshments and gift give-aways!
Would your kids like to try to play a real musical instrument? Before and after the concert we have what we call a "petting zoo". Paige's Music brings a wide assortment of instruments that we set out on tables in front of the stage to allow kids to experience playing a variety of real band instruments. Kids from previous years used this as an opportunity to choose their musical pathway through school and even started taking lessons early as a result. Case in point: one of the band members ended up getting a French horn and kids' music lessons from Guitarworks of Greenwood for his 8 year old daughter as a result of her excitement after actually trying one. Since French horn is NOT easy, perhaps advanced skills that result from starting so early with an advanced instrument will result in earning a nice scholarship in the future. (Mom & Dad's hopeful wishes shine through.)
After she got fairly good at French Horn, she started 6th grade band playing... oboe.
This Childrens' Concert officially begins at 4:00. We will begin setting up the "instrument petting zoo" at 3:00. Arrive early for plenty of time to play real musical instruments.
Bring your kids, grandkids, nephews, nieces and have them invite their friends! We are anticipating a crowd of 400 or more people for this show. You won't want to miss this!
