Songs in Brilliant Hues: Free Family Concert & Instrument Petting Zoo
Presented by Chameleon Arts Ensemble of Boston
May 31, 2014
What does purple sound like? In the same way that artists create scenes with shapes and colors, composers paint pictures with sound. Join us for a colorful afternoon of musical portraits that offer glimpses into worlds of fantasy, memory, and landscapes near and far, with chamber music by Mozart, Milhaud, Bright Sheng, Joan Tower, and more.
An instrument “Petting Zoo” and demonstration will follow the performance. Children will be able handle and play orchestral instruments as guided by members of Chameleon, and will be encouraged to touch, blow, pluck, bow, and strike.
Free admission, free parking, stroller-accessible, and appropriate for all ages!
