ANDREA LAM | KIDS’ CUSHION CONCERT – STORYTELLING DREAMS AND DANCES
Fri 15 July at 10:00 am - 10:45 am
Kids’ Cushion concert – Storytelling Dreams and Dances
The adage that ‘Music is a universal language’ is true in the way it speaks to even the youngest little people, telling stories, weaving dreams and inspiring joy and even dancing! In this fun and informal cushion concert, Andrea invites listeners young and old to let the music do the ‘talking’ with bite-size excerpts from her recital programs – including a Chopin waltz, Bach’s dances, Beethoven’s evocative Pathetique and Debussy’s What the West Wind Saw.
