Tiny Tots Presents Rain Grey and The Seven Drums
FOR RELEASE Friday, November 09, 2007
Seattle, WA – Seattle Symphony’s Tiny Tots series presents Rain Grey and The Seven Drums, a program of works that explores the world of percussion instruments through a retelling of the classic fairy tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The Tiny Tots series is designed for children from birth to age 5 and their families and has been carefully planned for young patrons—from the length of the concerts to their interactive and age-specific content. The series offers five different programs in the 2007–2008 season, of which this is the second. Performances of Rain Grey and The Seven Drums will take place on Friday, November 16, at 9:30, 10:30 & 11:30 a.m. and Saturday, November 17, at 9:30, 10:30, 11:30 a.m. & 1 p.m.
Performances are packed full of musical play, stories and songs led by early-childhood educators Let Your Music Shine with Lisa & Linda, formerly known as Identical Harmony. Let Your Music Shine with Lisa & Linda received the prestigious 2002 Parents’ Choice Gold Award for their recording with The Canadian Brass, Symphony Shine Time! Focus on the Brass. The Parents’ Choice Foundation is a non-profit consumer guide to children’s media. Local young musicians will also perform in the concerts and pre-concert lobby activities.
Tiny Tots performances are offered as a five-concert series, and take place on either five Friday mornings or five Saturday mornings. The remaining Friday morning performances are at 9:30, 10:30 or 11:30 a.m. on February 8, April 18 and June 13. The Saturday morning performances are at 9:30, 10:30, 11:30 a.m. or 1 p.m. on February 9, April 19 and June 14.
