Library Concerts for Kids- this week!

We’re off and running! After an exciting concert at Alum Rock United Methodist Church this morning, we kicked off our season with our first children’s concert at Morgan Hill Library in the afternoon. What a crowd! Together, we learned about the elements of beats & notes that make up melodies by composers including Haydn, Beethoven, Pachelbel, and Tchaikovsky. Afterward, the big surprise for our young audience was the Chamber Music by the Bay Petting Zoo, where they could try out mini violins of their own!

We’re excited for our NEXT children’s concert, on Thursday, January 10th at 7:00PM at Los Altos Library. Bring any and all young ones, and join us to learn more about how the string quartet family comes together to make music!
