Here’s what parents are saying about our Lollipops series…
“Love the participatory nature of the lollipop series and the short concerts. Just right for kids and Erin is great!”
“My three-year old grandson was enchanted with the entire experience.”
“I brought my 2 and 1/2 year old to the "petting zoo" and the concert. He loved playing the instruments and the volunteers from the youth orchestra were great with him. Very high quality music/acting for Peter and the Wolf. One hour was the perfect amount of time. I look forward to the next event.”
