Pictures at an Exhibition
In Pictures at an Exhibition, composer Mussorgsky created a tribute to an artist friend, based on viewing his artwork at an exhibition.  The wonderfully imaginative music of Pictures at an Exhibition emulates an art lover meandering through various works of art.  The music brings to life cheeping chicks, a crowded marketplace and an entrance gate to Kiev, to name a few.  Come help us move and groove to this very imaginative music.

A fun fall story written by Miriam Clark Potter, details the experiences of extroverted witch Fly-by-Night and her introverted companion cat, Footstool!  While out flying on Halloween night, they stop for a picnic and meet witch Stay-at-Home and her cat, Bouncey-Ball.  That meeting results in the four characters making a life altering decision!  Set to favorites like "In the Hall of the Mountain King" and "The Flight of the Bumblebee," children will have a blast acting out this family friendly classic.
