Piano by Nature proudly presents
A Winter CARNIVAL of the PERFORMING ARTS
You are all invited to join Piano by Nature on the weekend of JANUARY 27th and 28th, 2018 for a very special set of concerts — “for the child in all of us.”
The program will include these time-honored and beloved musical storytelling works:
- BABAR THE ELEPHANT by Francis Poulenc
- PETER AND THE WOLF by Sergei Prokofiev
- CARNIVAL OF THE ANIMALS by Camille Saint-Saëns
As we continue our tenth season anniversary celebration we will present concerts as only we can do — THIS TIME ESPECIALLY FOR KIDS. Both concerts will be matinee performances beginning at 3:00PM. PLUS we are having a Saturday-only pre-concert Winter Carnival of the Performing Arts (for details see below) beginning at 1:00pm at the Elizabethtown United Church of Christ Parish Hall. Free of charge for all.
These concerts include a collaboration of incredible LOCAL artists at the Hand House in a new setting arranged just for kids. Area piano wizards Jennifer Moore and Rose Chancler will perform 4-HAND piano works along with the phenomenal vocal talents of Willsboro Drama Director Derrick Hopkins as the very special narrator. Plus we have also engaged the marvelous artistic talents of Willsboro Art Teacher Reagan Monarch to make this event extra-special.
PLUS we are adding a Winter Carnival of the Performing Arts free to area kids (Saturday only) at the United Church of Christ Parish Center, located at 7580 Court Street in Elizabethtown, NY. Activities will include face-painting, mask-making, a theater and dance session, an instrument petting zoo, a musical cake walk, and more. Come one come all— festivities begin at 1:00pm and go until 2:30pm. Then the Saturday concert will begin at 3:00pm. And if you can’t make the carnival just come to the concert at the Hand House! Plus we have another concert on Sunday at 3:00pm.
We want everyone to come and enjoy this fabulous music with their children. For both concerts all children under the age of 15 are FREE. Donations are “what you wish” for all other attendees. These special concerts are an homage to the very first Piano by Nature Fun’raiser Concert held in July of 2008 and we are thrilled this time around to offer a concert especially crafted for all the wonderful children in our area!
PLEASE NOTE that we have altered our regular concert times to work better with families with children for these special concerts. Both the Saturday, Jan. 27th and Sunday, Jan. 28th concerts will be held at 3:00 PM at the Historic Hand House in Elizabethtown, NY. We will take reservations by phone at 518 962 8899 and email firstname.lastname@example.org. The room seats 50, so please make your reservations to ensure seating, as we anticipate these concerts could fillup quickly. And if you would like to give a bit extra towards our future concert seasons please let us know. Music in the North Country is alive because of you.
