GREENWICH, Conn. – The Ashforth Children’s Concert Series and Curiosity Concerts will present Tom Chapin and Friends at 3 p.m. Saturday in the Greenwich Library’s Cole Auditorium.
Chapin’s program, “My Pretty Planet,” is a lively, interactive performance engaging the hearts, minds and imaginations of young listeners and adults alike. Life-affirming original songs convey positive messages about family, good food and the green Earth.
In a career that spans five decades, 24 recordings and three Grammy awards, Chapin has covered an expansive creative ground. In addition to his work as a recording artist and concert performer, Chapin has acted on Broadway and works extensively in television, radio and film. As a music-maker, Chapin has maintained two long careers, both as a contemporary folk artist and as a pioneer in the field of children’s music.
This concert is the finale of Curiosity Concerts’ 2015-16 season. A post-concert reception includes refreshments provided by Whole Foods Market of Greenwich.
Tickets are free but required and can be reserved here . Only reserve if you are certain to attend, as the concerts are often oversubscribed.
The Ashforth Concert Series is designed to introduce children to classical music performances. The concert is open to the public at no charge through the support of Georgie and Henry A. Ashforth. Curiosity Concerts, now in its third season, is a series of free family concerts featuring professional musicians designed for children of any age who can enjoy one hour of music.
