A 16-year tradition, Concerts of Music for Children – open to ages 3 to 12 – will be held at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. in Murphy Recital Hall. Sponsored by LMU’s Department of Music and funded by the Sinatra Opera Endowment, the free shows will spotlight internationally acclaimed violinist Ken Aiso, an LMU faculty member, who will perform a musical version of Ferdinand the Bull, the much-loved tale of a young bull who would rather smell flowers than engage in bullfights.
Produced by Culver City’s own Tania Fleischer, the event will feature students from the LMU School of Film and Television and the Music Department will collaborate on a film set to live music. Additionally, members of the Los Angeles Contemporary Dance Company will accompany music of Haydn, Mozart and Bizet performed by LMU students, with original choreography geared toward children.
Both performances are open to the public. For more information, call the LMU Department of Music at 310-338-5386.
