The Town of Oro Valley, in partnership with the Music and Dance Academy, recently announced the launch of the new Oro Valley Kids Concert Series, which provides an intimate, interactive experience for young children and their families where they can explore the sights, sounds and workings of instruments and dance.
These free concerts will be held on the first Saturday of each month, from August through next May.
“The Music and Dance Academy is celebrating more than 20 years in Oro Valley,” said town economic development manager Amanda Jacobs. “It was a natural fit to partner with them to offer this quality series and promote the town’s arts, culture and business retention efforts.”
Here are details on the first two concerts:
• Saturday, August 5, 2017 at 10 a.m. at the Music & Dance Academy, 7954 N. Oracle Road: Explore the Music & Dance Academy. Dance and interact with musical instruments at the Music and Dance Academy.
• Saturday, September 2, 2017 at 10 a.m. at the Oro Valley Council Chambers, 11000 N. La Cañada Drive: “The Adventures of Victoria the Violin”: Once upon a time, there were several instruments living peacefully in the Land of Notes. Then, along came a new instrument, Victoria the Violin. She was looking for adventure! Come join Victoria as she meets all sorts of new instrument friends!
Since 2011, the Town of Oro Valley has offered free concerts to residents and visitors of all ages, and will continue to do so through its other monthly concert series offerings, including the Steam Pump Ranch Concert Series, Community Center Concert Series and Oro Valley Marketplace Concert Series.
