A symphony for the young, and the young at heart

A concert to delight the young and the young at heart.

Dr. James Montgomery conducts the Strathcona Symphony Orchestra on Sunday, March 13 at 2 p.m. at the Native Sons Hall in Courtenay.

Attendees will discover what magic Mozart can create using a simply nursery rhyme tune. The strings and nimble fingers of Veronica Kloch on the piano will dazzle, with his sparkling version of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. The whole program is designed to delight the audience.

Children under nine are free but must bring an adult.

There will be musical pirates and magicians, clowns and fireworks.

After the intermission children will be invited to visit the musical zoo. Long and McQuade will have instruments of all sorts and sizes for the audience to meet and play. From Tubbi the Tuba to the Perky Picollo, they will all be waiting to meet music fans of all ages.

Tickets ($10) are available at Blue Heron Books in Comox, Laughing Oyster Books in Courtenay, and at the door.
