Out and About in KC: Kids Club

We’re going to work on adding a new series of posts called “Our and About in KC” highlighting fun things to do around town with the 5 and under crowd.  I thought it appropriate to start by highlighting something from our Partner organization, The UMKC Community Music and Dance Academy.  Each year, the Community Music & Dance Academy offers a special concert series for children ages 3-8 years of age called Kids Club.  In fact, some of you may have been a part of last year’s “Wiggle, Giggle, Quack” concert, which the teachers at Kindermusik with Joy presented (with the help of my dear hubby and pianist, Andrew Granade).

This year the Academy has another great lineup with music and dance events helping us tell Taller Tales.  Concerts include a new work for String Quartet based on the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Oct. 9), the ballet the Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ (Nov. 6), a presentation by the Youth Symphony Melody Machine (Jan. 29) with an opportunity to experience orchestral instruments up close, and the New Horizons wind band (March 26) performing works newly composed just for the Kids Club series.

Kids Club events are held at White Recital Hall in the James C. Olson Performing Arts Center, located at 4949 Cherry St.  FREE parking is available.  Each event starts at 10:00 a.m. and lasts about an hour.
