Lollipops: A Wish for Wings That Work
10:00 am: Hendricks Library, Simpsonville
11:30 am: Hughes Main Library, Downtown Greenville
Featuring the GSO Wind Quintet
ADMISSION IS FREE!
Opus is a penguin who longs to fly, so he orders a machine and assembles it; when it comes time to test the machine by jumping off a three-mile-high cliff, Opus decides to do something less dangerous, and goes home to make anchovy Christmas cookies. He does not give up on his dream though, and makes a Christmas wish to Santa Claus for “wings that will work.” Will Opus get his one Christmas wish? Featuring the GSO Wind Quintet, “A Wish for Wings That Work” has become a holiday classic since its introduction twenty-five years ago.
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.
