“Symphony in Sneeze,” a family concert of symphonic music play, will be presented at 7 p.m. August 23 in the Buhler Outdoor Performance Center at 3625 Garretson Avenue on the Morningside College campus.
The free concert features musician, author and child development specialist Jim Gill and a 45-piece orchestra.
“Jim has created a program of what he calls symphonic music play,” said Randy Peters, artistic director of Morningside’s Betty Ling Tsang Summer Fine Arts Series. “In his concerts, Jim doesn’t just perform for children and their parents. He uses his music to promote active play between adults and children.”
Gill has produced five recordings of music play activities that have received awards from the American Library Association and the Parents’ Choice Foundation. He also is the author of “May There Always Be Sunshine,” a picture book that received the 2002 Book Award from the Philadelphia Children’s Museum.
“Symphony in Sneeze” is the final 2008 production for the Betty Ling Tsang Summer Fine Arts Series at Morningside’s new outdoor amphitheater-style performance center. In the event of rain, the performance will be moved to Eppley Auditorium, 3625 Garretson Avenue, on the Morningside campus.
