Sound All Around: Brass

FREE Program for Children Ages 3-6

in the Ballroom at The Gideon Putnam

Two 45-minute concerts!


Charlotte Blake Alston – Host and Storyteller
Ernesto Tovar Torres – Horn
Hugh Sung – Piano

Nurture your child’s passion for music! Sound All Around is a great introduction for youngsters that features a musician of The Philadelphia Orchestra and award-winning storyteller Charlotte Blake Alston.

Each concert is 45 minutes long and features singing, movement, storytelling, and listening. It’s a great way for kids, families, camps and daycares to have fun with music.

Presenting: the brass family! The brass family is the loudest of the orchestra, and can be heard from far, far away, making its instruments perfect for fanfares and announcements. This family includes the trumpet, trombone, French horn, and tuba. Brass players produce sound by buzzing their lips into the mouthpiece. Philadelphia Orchestra musician Ernesto Tovar Torres will guide the audience through this regal instrument family.
