The DeKalb Symphony orchestra will be presenting their Annual Children’s Concert, “Around the World in 60 Minutes” on January 24, 2016. Travel the globe at the speed of sound with the orchestra, Maestro Cherniavsky, and WSB-TV’s Jovita Moore, as they take a musical journey around the world. They will lead listeners on a magical musical adventure that will explore a variety of cultures. Some pieces to be included in the program are The Star-Spangled Banner, Song of India, Georgia on My Mind, and Hands Across The Sea.
The concert will also feature the Decatur School of Ballet, Aly Camara – African drummer, and John Recknagel – Scottish bagpiper. Children will hear a kaleidoscope of music styles from all over the world and will learn that music is truly a universal language that brings people together. The performance is designed for all children but is open to adults who are still young at heart. This is a great way to introduce your children or grandchildren to the wonders of symphonic music. It is fun, educational, and we hope the start of a life-long musical journey.
This special event will take place on Sunday, January 24th at 3:00pm in the gymnasium at the Clarkston campus of Georgia State University, Perimeter College. All tickets will be general admission and are $5.00. Purchase tickets online or you may call 678-891-3565. Tickets may also be purchased at the door. Bring the family and come enjoy an afternoon with the symphony!
