Timbalooloo Jazz for Kids with Oran Etkin and Special Guest Vince Giordano

March 5, 11 amnoon.

Timbalooloo is an interactive concert series led by founder and internationally-renowned clarinetist Oran Etkin that will introduce children to a new musical tradition each month with the help of a special guest. The Timbalooloo method brings instruments to life and encourages children to “talk” through music, activating your child’s imagination and encouraging their self-expression. Designed to teach your children complex musical concepts through age-appropriate games and stories, Timbalooloo makes music fun and educational.

This performance will feature renowned early-jazz expert Vince Giordano, who will bring in his collection of vintage low-end instruments: the tuba, bass-sax, and a metal upright bass as well as the banjo. Vince and Oran will take the children on a journey starting with the sounds of Mardi Gras in New Orleans, traveling up the Mississippi and all the way to New York. Vince is a Grammy Award-winning bandleader of The Nighthawks and composer of music for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and numerous films and is considered one of the leading experts on American music of the 1920s/30s.

Children ages 2 and up are invited to attend. For this performance, vaccines are recommended for children 4 years old and younger but are required for everyone ages 5 and up. All guests are required to wear N95, KF94, or KN95 masks for the duration of the show; child and adult masks will also be provided upon check-in.
