This show has everything, including the kitchen sink! The Centennial Concert Hall transforms itself into the home of percussionist Vern Griffiths in this unique and energetic program. Through great symphonic classics, Vern will explore percussion instruments of the orchestra and the musical possibilities of instruments found in every household.
Beginning at 1 pm, children can participate in a variety of exciting musical activities, such as crafts, rhythm ensembles and round singing before the concert! Children can also visit the Conducting Station, where they will get the chance to conduct a WSO string ensemble, or they can visit the Instrument Petting Zoo, where our Sistema Winnipeg students will help them touch and play orchestral instruments. Keep your eyes peeled for our musical mascot, Manny Tuba, who will be visiting all the stations to say hello! These activities are presented in partnership with Music for Young Children and Sistema Winnipeg.
