RVSB 2013 Children's Concert: Heroes and Villains

From the RVSB website:
Bridgewater, NJ, February 3, 2013— The Raritan Valley Symphonic Band (RVSB) will present its annual children’s concert Sunday February 3, 2013 at 3:00 pm in the Bridgewater-Raritan High School auditorium. The school is located at 600 Garretson Road, Bridgewater, New Jersey. Admission is free and open to the public.

This concert is a great opportunity for children to learn to recognize musical instruments, while sharing a cultural performance with parents. Under the musical direction of Jennifer Eidel, RVSB Assistant Conductor, children will listen to music from popular kid’s movies like The Incredibles, Pirates of the Caribbean and Harry Potter. The band will also perform “Symphonic Marches” by John Williams and “Armed Forces Salute” arranged by Bob Lowden.

A musical instrument “petting zoo” will follow the 45 minute concert. This demonstration of woodwind, brass and percussion instruments will be given by members of the band and will take place in the lobby of the auditorium.

Every detail of the RVSB Children's Concert series is designed to appeal to the younger set, while still providing a fun musical experience for the adults.

The band members dress in a less formal manner, audience participation is encouraged, the music is familiar to the children, and the concert is less than an hour - short enough to keep the attention of the most wiggly audience member.

Save time for the after-concert "instrument petting zoo". Members of the band show-off their instruments to the children who collect stickers as they make the rounds.

The concert is held at Bridgewater-Raritan High School, 600 Garretson Road, Bridgewater, NJ 08807. Donations are accepted.

I am a retired teacher and in the city there was no art, music or gym in grades K-4 and it was a terrible loss to the kids...Michelle
