Lollipops: The Tortoise and The Hare

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

Featuring the GSO Wind Quintet


The classic children’s tale, “The Tortoise and The Hare,” comes to life through SCCT’s Principal Teaching Artist Traysie Amick and the GSO Wind Quintet.  Even the slowest tortoise can defeat the quickest hare, and even the proudest hare can lean a timeless lesson from the most humble tortoise: slow and steady wins the race!  Here is a superbly rendered journey from starting line to finish that embodies the bravery, perseverance, and humility we can all find inside ourselves.

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.
