Birmingham Music Club Young People's Concert:
Maestro Explores TV Music
at the Alabama Theatre
9:30 am and 12:30 pm
 
Music is so important in a TV show, whether as a theme song or in the background.

Join the Maestro, Young People's Orchestra, and Singers in exploring what is behind this music we sometimes take for granted.  Which instruments are playing?  Which music was newly composed for the show, and which music is really borrowed from Classical Music?  Suitable for grades 2-8 and families.  Make your tentative reservations now.  Please contact
Randi Bourdages, Ticket Coordinator

Stay tuned for more!
