Bring your family to Blair’s Precollege Festival of Music Sept. 10

Sep. 1, 2017, 11:15 AM

The Blair School of Music presents its Precollege Festival of Music on Sunday, Sept. 10, from 1 to 5 p.m. The Blair School is located at 2400 Blakemore Ave.

Bring your family to this fun-filled, free celebration of precollege music. Throughout the afternoon, the event will feature mini performances by the Young Men’s Chorus, the Children’s Cello Choir, Fiddle Frenzy, Suzuki Violins, and the Sankofa African drum and dance ensemble.

Young children will enjoy “Let’s Read a Story” with librarian Sara Manus at 1:45 p.m. and Kindermusik playdates with Miss Amy at 3 and 4 p.m. Along the Children’s Way plaza, you’ll find a musical instrument “petting zoo” (where children can try various instruments), face painting and crafts.

Take a backstage tour of the Martha Rivers Ingram Center for the Performing Arts (Ingram Hall) with Joseph DeBusk, Blair’s technical director, and explore new musical worlds in a casual, festive atmosphere. Free parking is available directly across the plaza in the West Garage.
