Kids and their families can express their oneness with people everywhere on Sunday, Dec. 13, at 3 p.m. with this interactive Family Holiday Concert here at WHS. The sing-along, presented by Mary Ann Hall’s Music for Children & Beyond™ program, will feature Christmas, Hanukkah and other songs of the season accompanied by faculty from MFC on guitar, harp, keyboard and flute. The intimate setting of the WHS’s Sheffer Gallery will allow guest families and performers to enjoy “an up-close and beautiful sharing” of holiday songs, music educator Hall said. This year’s tenth edition of MFC’s holiday concerts at the Westport Historical Society will celebrate the themes of “peace, gratitude and kindness,” the society’s executive director, Susan Gold, said. Hall, who holds a master’s degree from the U of Mich., founded Music for Children 40 years ago on the principle that “the child is the instrument.” The mission, she said, is to develop musicianship and a life long enjoyment of music by “connecting the ART of the music with the HEART of the child. Hall said children from the musical theater program also will perform at this year’s concert.
Tickets are $15 for families, $5 per person, free for kids 2 and under, reservations are strongly suggested, call 203-222-1424.
