Lollipops: Gabriella’s Song
10:00 am: Hendricks Library, Simpsonville
11:30 am: Hughes Main Library, Downtown Greenville
Featuring the GSO String Quintet
ADMISSION IS FREE!
In the streets and canals of Venice, Gabriella can hear nothing but sweet music. The drying laundry goes “slap-slap,” the church bells go “ting-aling-ling,” and the lire go “jing-aling-ling.” Soon, Gabriella is humming her way through town –and everyone hears her song! Some find it sad, others smile when they hear it — but none can forget the beautiful melody. Before long, a certain struggling composer is inspired by Gabriella’s song — and a beautiful symphony is born.
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.
