Symphony Nova Scotiaĺ─˘s Musical Munchkins program returns this fall

Halifax, NS ĺ─ý Symphony Nova Scotia is delighted once again to present Musical Munchkins! After another overwhelming success in 2008-09, the Musical Munchkins program is back this fall to introduce even more 3- to 5-year-olds to music and motion in a fun, interactive way.

Beginning September 23, Symphony Nova Scotia will offer 19 free-of-charge Musical Munchkins sessions for kids and parents at public libraries throughout the Halifax Regional Municipality. Parents and guardians can register their children by calling their preferred library (dates and times are listed below).

The goal of Musical Munchkins is to introduce 3- to 5-year-old youngsters to music and motion in a fun, comfortable environment. Each 30-minute session includes musical demonstrations, games, activities, and dancing, all directed by two talented Symphony Nova Scotia musicians.

ĺ─˙Response to this program from staff and patrons around the region has been unanimously positive,ĺ─¨ says Heather MacKenzie, library branch manager at Alderney Gate. ĺ─˙This fun and lively introduction to music and movement brings preschoolers, parents (and grandparents!) together to enjoy dance, games and other activities through different styles of music. We are very grateful to Symphony Nova Scotia and the participating musicians for allowing us to bring such a high quality cultural program to families in our community.ĺ─¨

Last yearĺ─˘s Musical Munchkins program was extremely popular, with most sessions at full capacity. Please register early to ensure your place in the program!

Symphony Nova Scotia is also willing to hold extra Musical Munchkins sessions for groups associated with special needs children.

This program is co-presented by Symphony Nova Scotia and Halifax Public Libraries with the generous sponsorship of Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline.

Musical Munchkins is just one part of Symphony Nova Scotiaĺ─˘s comprehensive educational programs. Other offerings include Adopt-a-Musician, Open Dress Rehearsals, In-School Concerts, School Matinees, the Library Series, Pre-Concert Chats, and family concerts.
