October 6th- Alfonso’s Miniature Orchestra– performed by Lily Silly Puppets

Alfonso lives with his grandmother in Southern Spain and isn’t allowed to study music. When he falls in love with the guitar, his only help comes from a flamenco-dancing gypsy who teaches him the secrets of the instrument. A great intro to classical music for kids. Live music by classically trained guitarist Matthew Ocone. Featuring music from Spanish Masters, including Granados, Albeniz and Tárrega.
Puppet show with a sneak peek at the stage after the show!
