Lollipops: Max Found Two Sticks

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

Featuring Daniel Kirkpatrick & Jason Currin, Percussion


On a day when Max doesn’t feel much like talking to anyone, a strong breeze shakes two heavy twigs to the ground in front of his brownstone home.  Picking them up, the young boy begins to beat out a rhythm that imitates the sounds of his city neighborhood: pigeons startled into flight, rain tapping against a window, the chiming of church bells, and a train thundering down the elevated track.  Max’s unique self-expression is brought to life through percussion musicians Daniel Kirkpatrick and Jason Currin, as well as SCCT Principal Teaching Artist Traysie Amick’s reading of this delightful 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.
