The Musical Journeys Program of the Fredonia School of Music continues its seventh season of free concerts designed to appeal to very young children. Selected student ensembles from the Fredonia School of Music will perform half-hour Children's Concerts on four Saturday mornings with two performances (one at 10:30 a.m. and one at 11:30 am). The third concert will be held on Saturday, March 2 in Darwin R. Barker Library, 7 Day Street in Fredonia.

"The Children's Concerts are enjoyable, child-appropriate opportunities for very young children to interact with music and musicians. For the young audience and the performers, music becomes a playmate to join in a thrilling adventure." said Jill Reese, assistant professor of music and co-organizer at the Fredonia School of Music. "During these events, learning and teaching among the children and the student musicians is mutual: children learn about music through moving, listening, and creating, and our student musicians learn to engage young imaginations and ignite new musical passions!"

The Children's Concert Series is part of the Musical Journeys Program, a community outreach projectoffered by the Fredonia School of Music. More information is available at or call (716) 673-4628.
