Lollipops: Irving the Frog and His Violin

10:00 am: Jean M. Smith Library, Greer
11:30 am: Hughes Main Library, Greenville

Featuring the GSO String Quintet


Irving the Frog is a bit different from other frogs — he plays the violin!  Though he starts the story alone and unlike other creatures, he believes in himself and loves the music he makes.  In this offbeat story, Irving makes friends as he makes music.  He shows that no matter how different you are, others will accept you for who you are and what you do.  The GSO String Quintet will join a lighthearted reading by SCCT Principal Teaching Artist Traysie Amick for a charming presentation of this quirky tale.

Lollipops concerts introduce children to classical music and the instruments of the orchestra through interactive concerts presented by members of the Greenville Symphony Orchestra.  During each concert, chamber ensembles accompany a storybook reading.  And, of course, audience members receive a lollipop at the end of each performance!

Lollipops concerts are appropriate for children ages 2 to 7, although all children and adults are welcome.  Programs last approximately 30 minutes.  Reservations are not required and admission is free.

Lollipops is sponsored by BMW Manufacturing Co.
