The Brass: Ferdinand the Bull

Due to inclement weather, "The Brass: Ferdinand the Bull" performances originally scheduled for Saturday, February 9, have been rescheduled to Saturday, March 2. Tickets for the original shows will be honored on the new date.

Stop and smell the flowers with Ferdinand the Bull and his friends, the brass section! The French horn, trumpet, trombone and tuba will teach us how music, like Ferdinand, can be fast or slow and loud or soft. Tiny Tots Concerts are designed for ages 0 to 5. EXTEND YOUR EXPERIENCE: Join us 30-minutes before the performance for fun and interactive pre-concert activities that include an instrument zoo, a percussion play area and a fun craft in the Samuel & Althea Stroum Grand Lobby.
