Introducing the Cathedral Family Series Concerts

This collection of concerts is designed to introduce young children to music in an interactive performance-setting. Our first event entitled "Back to Bach" is on Thursday, October 25 at 12:30 PM.  Cathedral Family Series Concerts are between 30 to 40 minutes in length, take place during the day and in the early evening, and are free of charge. Children will be able to listen to age-appropriate sacred music, sing along with the organ and the choristers of The Madeleine Choir School, learn about composers, engage in hands-on activities, all while experiencing the beautiful setting of the Cathedral of the Madeleine.
We hope you will join us for our first event later this month as we travel back to the Baroque to meet Johann Sebastian Bach, to sing some of his music, and to hear him play the beautiful organ in the Cathedral of the Madeleine. We especially want to extend an invitation to children ages 3 to 8, but friends of all ages are invited. Tickets are not needed for this event, however, if you are a teacher and you would like to bring your class, please contact us at mmalinka@utmcs.org so we can arrange for seating for your students.
