On Sunday, April 7, at 2 p.m. the Marine Band will hold a free, kid-friendly concert focused on Big Band music. Featuring a wide variety of, modern pop, timeless jazz classics and music from the popular animated film “The Incredibles,” this 50-minute performance is best suited for children 6-12, but offers music for all to enjoy! Some selections from the concert include Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” Joe Garland’s “In the Mood” and Harold Arlen’s “Over the Rainbow.”
After the concert, children are invited to a “musical petting zoo,” for the opportunity to get a close up look – and even try to play – the instruments used in the performance. Musicians from the Marine Band will be present to answer questions, explain how to play the instruments and for photos. A pre-concert performance, also designed for children, will begin in the lobby at 1:15 p.m. Activity packets and crayons will be available for children to use during the concert.
The concert will take place at Northern Virginia Community College’s Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall in Alexandria (4915 East Campus Drive, Alexandria, VA 22311). The concert is free, no tickets are required and free parking is available in the adjacent garage.
