Charles ArmahTunji and the Giant — For Children

For the young — and grownups lucky enough to tag along — this year’s Festival presented two performances of chamber music for children, featuring the story of an African boy who is surprised by his own courage. Like last year’s story, it’s musically illustrated by David Mullikin. Tunji featured clarinet, strings, an African drummer from Ghana, and the very same cool narrator as last year!

Children were invited to bring their favorite adults. No admission charge.
