This month, join in a unique interactive melange of music and story activities, from long ago through today, from the Newberry collection, including selections from Why Be a Goop?, Tales for Youth, Madlenka’s Dog, and Angry Aardvark to Zealous Zebra: Curious Creatures ABC. We’ll close with a hands-on Musical Instrument Petting Zoo!

Jamison Williams, soprano saxophone, and Alex Ellsworth, cello, join the Trikes this week. Jamison is an artist and early childhood educator form Florida and Alex is a educator and a member of the CSO Civic Orchestra and MOCREP, a new music ensemble.

This fall’s new series for children, on the second Saturday morning of each month, features the Lucky Trikes storytelling chamber band. Drawing on children’s books from the Newberry collection, the Trike’s Deirdre Harrison and Kyle Price, joined by musicians from Chicago’s thriving new music scene, will create a unique music and story experience for each program.
