Join Tucson Symphony Orchestra and Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance for a new musical adventure by TSO violinist and composer Michael Fan.

 

Just for Kids with the TSO Flute-Viola-Harp Trio will delight youngsters on Saturday, Feb. 2 at 10 a.m. with "Pip and the Pirate" at Oro Valley Town Hall Council Chambers, 11000 N. La Canada, in conjunction with the Saturday Farmer's Market.  

 

Just for Kids explores interactive ways to connect kids to the arts through music. With free admission to the concert, the program teaches children about music through engagement and hands-on experiences with instruments.  

 

The popular series delivers fun and informal chamber ensemble concerts lasting 45 to 50 minutes. The performances use participation with the kids to introduce classical music and orchestral instruments in an entertaining and kid-friendly environment to families including those with very young children.      

 

The Town of Oro Valley and Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance restored this beloved event, after discontinuing for several years due to lost financial support.

Thanks to the generous underwriting of Bill Adler, the public can enjoy this interactive, musical performance for free.  

 

Pip and the Pirate                      

It was graduation day at the Pirate Academy. "Ye be a true Pirate today, Matey! Here be yer certificate. Here be yer parrot." "That's not a parrot" said the new graduate. "She be too small. I wants a big squawker, not a pip squeaker." "Nay! That be the last one we got. Take 'er or leave 'er." "Please take me," said the tiny bird. "I'll make you proud of me."
