CANCELED: Lollipops: Never Play Music Right Next to the Zoo
Out of an abundance of care and concern for the health and safety of our audience members, musicians and staff, and in consideration of the rapidly changing public health situation regarding the COVID-19 virus, the Greenville Symphony Orchestra is canceling all concerts and events for the remainder of the 2019-20 season through May 12, 2020.
Featuring the GSO Wind Quintet
ADMISSION IS FREE!
Oh, children! Remember! Whatever you may do,
Never play music right next to the zoo.
They’ll burst from their cages, each beast and each bird,
Desperate to play all the music they’ve heard.
A concert gets out of hand when the animals at the neighboring zoo storm the stage and play the instruments themselves in this hilarious story by beloved actor, John Lithgow.
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.
