Please join us for How The Gimquat Found Her Song!

This coming March 15 at 10:30am, hundreds of kids from around Connecticut will gather at The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts for a school-day concert designed just for elementary schoolers by the Hartford Symphony Orchestra. In this beloved production from Platypus Theatre, audiences embark on a musical expedition across continents and through centuries to help a discouraged bird called a Gimquat discover her unique voice. Young audiences laugh, chant and sing along with the Gimquat and her wizard guide as they explore musical styles from Gregorian chant to rap. There will be pantomime, puppets, and poetry, as well as interaction with the kids in the audience.

We would love to have you with us. If you're interested, please visit our Program Registration page at , or email me, Miriam Engel, at to sign up.
