A special winter family concert series presented in partnership with Rush Hour Concerts

Each week in this three-part series, a new theme will introduce young music enthusiasts and their adult companions to basic musical concepts and help them get to know the woodwind family by solving The Mystery of the Missing Musical Clock on February 25, choosing a Quintet Idol winner on March 3, and playing Where in the World is Quintet Attacca? on March 10.
Families may attend all or choose one; then, after each concert, a special treasure hunt will be available for young guests to explore the museum. As space is limited, reservations are recommended.

Where in the World is Quintet Attacca?

Where will Quintet Attacca go on their upcoming world tour?  They don’t know, but their creative manager has given them some surprise pieces to play to help them. The audience’s horizons are expanded as they hear music from all over the world, learn about its different characteristics and a little about the countries, too. Music selections span from Scott Joplin of the US to Francaix of France to Justinian Tamasuza of Uganda. Quintet Attacca will provide clues, a colorful world map, and even some costumes to help the audience figure out “Where in the World is Quintet Attacca?”
