The focus is on kids and introducing them to several musical genres at the Timmins Symphony Orchestra’s next concert, the Saturday after next.
Ottawa-based Platypus Theatre is bringing its production of “How the Gimquat Found Her Song” to perform with the orchestra.
TSO director Josh Wood says it’s about a mythical creature who can’t remember how to sing — or what her song is.
“There’s a magician and he takes her back through time to different periods in history, and you get to hear the different music from those,” Wood outlines.
It ranges from a Gregorian chant to jazz and rap. Listen to the audio link below to some of the titles of songs you might recognize.
Wood says he’s hoping for a lot of young kids and their adults. It’s even being performed at a family-friendly time.
“Usually our concerts are at eight o’clock. We wanted to bump it up to make it a little more accessible for families. It’s going to be April 1st, 6:00pm at the auditorium at Thériault.”
Tickets are 40 dollars for adults and 15 for anyone under the age of 30. They’re on sale at the Timmins Museum.
