Kids concert at MCM Academy

January's concert.
Children will enjoy and get exposed to a diverse range of piano stylings when the award-winning duo Kirk Whipple and Marilyn Morales take the stage at the Miami Conservatory of Music Recital Hall in Coconut Grove at 3:30 pm on Saturday, April 11.  That and they’ll enjoy snacks, an optional baking class and an instrument petting zoo as part of a “concert in three acts of music, food and education” specifically created for young people by Anne Chiheportiche of Musimelange.

 “We want children to enjoy a classical concert and the best way to do that was to create a program that they will want to participate in,” according to Brigitte Kishlar, who is the founder of the Miami Conservatory of Music.  “We’ve added food and an instrument zoo to provide additional entertainment geared for younger attention spans.”

In the first act children will enjoy snacks and participation in an optional baking class, socialize with other kids and then take their seats for the second act piano concert. After the concert a third act that includes enjoying the treats made in the baking class and an instrument petting zoo complete the festivities.  The cost is just $10 for children 4-10 and $15 for 11 and older. The optional baking class is $5 in addition. Admission includes all the food, Piano concert and instrument zoo experience if purchased in advance at musimelange.com.  At the door on the day of performance prices will be $5 higher.

 “This is a perfect way for parents to get their children interested in classical music which can provide a lifetime of enjoyment and pleasure,” Kishlar notes. “And it’s a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon with the whole family!”

The Miami Conservatory of Music Recital Hall is located at 2911 Grand Avenue at Mayfair in the Grove.  The Recital Hall is near the Mayfair Fountain on the promenade between Grand and Florida avenues.
