Get your calendars out, Smarties, this event is one you won’t want to miss! When Charlotte Symphony’s Lollipop Family Concert Season starts every spring, I realize that I am the luckiest duck in the world living in this great city of Charlotte. Lollipops family concerts bring children and adults together to experience the thrill of a live orchestra. Enchanting storytellers, comic clowns, and graceful dancers join the Charlotte Symphony musicians to create a magical musical world for young listeners. This wondrous series is the T-I-C-K-E-T for family fun and you can feel good about every second of every event as your children are being exposed to the beautiful arts that our city provides.
Charlotte Symphony’s Green Eggs & Ham will be at Blumenthal uptown next weekend – I encourage you to get your tickets now. It will be an event to remember! “Sam I Am” comes to the Symphony in a skillfully staged and delightfully designed musical adaptation of Dr. Seuss’s classic, and perfect timing as we just celebrated Dr. Suess’ birthday on March 2nd (my twins could not be a more perfect real-life representation of Thing 1 and Thing 2 and are obsessed with all things Dr. Suess!). With music by Robert Kapilow, Green Eggs and Ham celebrates rhyme and reason and introduces young people to the beauty and versatility of the human voice and the wonders of the orchestra.
