Family Tunes and Tales is a fun, free, and exciting way to get your children engaged in reading and music! Designed for 3-8 year-olds, this is the perfect opportunity for your young children to learn and experience firsthand how music and stories fit together. See the instrument families of the orchestra – string, brass, winds and percussion – in five small ensembles that rotate performances at a library near you. During each event, parents and children will learn about the instruments and hear a musical storybook reading.  You can bring your children to every concert at your local library and see a different ensemble every time, absolutely free!

Unless otherwise indicated performances begin at 11:00 a.m. on Saturdays
