School age children and their families are invited to join Manchester Music Festival for a special performance featuring Pius Cheung, a marimbist, and select musicians from our Young Artists program.
Works for solo marimba and string chamber music selections. This performance will provide an interactive experience for the attending children to be involved with the percussion performance, as guided by master performer Pius Cheung. MMF Artistic Director Adam Neiman will provide commentary about the musical selections, and this performance will be educational in nature.
This concert will be followed by an ice-cream social.
This is a free event.
