The Chappaqua Orchestra invites you to its first concert of the spring, Together In Music, an Inclusive Family Concert, on Saturday March 9, 4pm-5pm at The Chappaqua Performing Arts Center, 480 Bedford Road in Chappaqua. Price of tickets is $ 25 for adults and $ 15 for ages 4-15 (3 & under on laps is free).
Conductor Barbara Yahr and TCO partners with the Chappaqua EPIC group for an interactive and inclusive Family Concert spotlighting the special needs community playing with the orchestra. This Concert will be a safe space for all children including those with sensory sensitivities. Support will be provided and a chill-out room will be available. Hang out post-concert for an instrument petting zoo! Six to eight young people with special needs will be performing with the orchestra on stage. There will be four kids from the Chappaqua area, one child from the Music Conservatory in White Plains and two kids from Arts for Healing in New Canaan.
The March concert presents an exciting twist, as it’s the first in a series of the Orchestra’s auditioning of potential permanent conductors. Chappaqua Orchestra is in the midst of its search and Ms. Yahr will be the first candidate. Barbara Yahr comes to the Chappaqua Orchestra from the Greenwich Village Orchestra in Manhattan and we are very excited to have her with us for March’s Together In Music.
The March concert will be sponsored by Hip Kids, Whole Foods, Natalia Wixom/Compass and The Friends of ChapPAC.
