The Mom here! 

On Sunday, September 23 from 12 to 4 p.m., children and families will have the opportunity to take part in free, interactive musical activities as part of Fall Family Day in Carnegie Hall’s Resnick Education Wing. This musical open house celebrates storytelling, with master storytellers and acclaimed musicians coming together for a variety of fun activities throughout the day. Children will have the chance to contribute to stories through music, dance, and visual art, as well as build and perform on their own storytelling sticks. Families will also get an introduction to film scoring and learn how a soundtrack can affect the mood of a story. The day will be highlighted by high-energy performances from hip-hop duo Soul Science Lab. Admission is granted on a first-come, first-served basis, and families are welcome to drop by for a visit or stay throughout the day for a musical adventure of their choice.

Families with infants ages two or younger are also invited to participate in OTOYOTOY!, an immersive theater piece offered in Carnegie Hall’s Resnick Education Wing on October 21 and 22 at 10:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. Children play in a world where sounds and words are shared, mimicked, and transformed, with performers and audience members delighting in the joy of making music together. Conceived by Zoë Palmer and Thomas Cabaniss, with Saskia Lane, this vocal hullaballoo is appropriate for babies and toddlers up to two years old.
