These short interactive events, long a Maverick tradition, are designed for enjoyment by children in grades K-6. Admission is free for children and adults.

Melody’s Mostly Musical Day

Melody’s Mostly Musical Day, follows a child’s musical day from breakfast to bedtime. Melody moves through her day playing with butterflies, enjoying ice cream, walking her dog and of course practicing piano in the afternoon. After an adventure with spaghetti and meatballs, Melody retreats to her bedroom where she plays with her dollhouse, a miniature white piano and enjoys a beautiful view of the night sky. She dreams of sleeping outside in a bed of flowers with the moon smiling down on her. The delightful compilation encourages children to find their own joy and playfulness in classical music. The performance includes music by Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Prokofiev, Poulenc, Grieg, Brahms and Chopin.

Jenny Lin is one of today’s most respected pianists. Her exciting stage presence and ability to combine classical and contemporary music have brought her to the attention of international critics and audiences. Her concerts have taken her to such iconic stages as Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall, to venues throughout Europe and the Far East, and to festivals and competitions throughout the world.
