Morning concert aims to ignite kids’ interest in music

Langley music school’s string quartet perform for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers

Langley Community Music School’s resident ensemble will be offering a free concert for kids this week.

Rose Gellert String Quartet will present its annual Tunes for Tots concert on Tuesday, Dec. 7, from 10:30 to 11 a.m. at LCMS.

This free concert encourages children and their caregivers to experience the joy of music together in a safe and nurturing environment, and the school invites everyone to pre-register to come and enjoy the tunes, said school principal Carolyn Granholm, noting the quartet will be sharing seasonal favourites and more.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for LCMS to share music with our youngest community members,” Granholm added.

“Often these concerts are their very first experience with a live musical performance, and it’s a great joy to see how much they love the music and respond to the musicians.”

It’s also a great opportunity for parents to speak with the faculty and learn more learn about the schools’ diverse programs for students of all ages and levels, including Music for Babies & Toddlers and Sing, Move & Play! early learning classes.

This is the first in a series of free children’s concerts and community events hosted by the Langley Community Music School. Others on the calendar in 2022 include a Family Intro to Music Night on Tuesday, March 15, and LCMS’s Community Day open house on Saturday, May 7.
