Children’s Concert 2022

Children’s Concert 2022

October 2, 2022 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm Americal Civic Center, Wakefield, MA 01880

Children who learn music at an early age have been shown to perform better in most other areas of development. Hoping to help ignite that creative spark in our local youth, the Middlesex Concert Band presents its annual children’s concert on Sunday, October 2, 2022 at the Americal Civic Center in Wakefield, MA.

Each year, this free concert, which is geared toward children four to nine years of age, focuses on a different aspect of music—demonstrating for the audience how tempos, rhythms, instruments, etc. are combined to bring a composer’s vision to life. This year’s theme is The Sound of Music (no relation to the musical of the same name).

Program Includes:

  • French Impressions – Woolfenden
  • Old Churches – Colgrass
  • El Relicario – Padilla
  • Excerpts from Appalachian Spring – Copland (Arr Longfield)
  • Sandpaper Ballet – Leroy Anderson
  • Flourish for Wind Band – R. Vaughan WIlliams
  • The Country Club Stomp – Hall
  • Latina – Bencriscutto
  • Travelin’ Music – Sheldon
  • Shenandoah – Thomas
