“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind,
flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
                                                         — Plato

With the late arrival of spring this year, we’re all eager to bring a little life back into everything. Join us as we help singer-songwriter Joel Frankel celebrate the 20th anniversary of his classic CD, “Don’t Sit On a Cactus”. Bring the kids and let their imaginations take flight. For some more musical merriment, they’re invited to join teaching artist Jennifer Viets before the show to make their own musical instrument so they can play along with Joel during the concert.
