MAMM Presents: The Kids Are Alright Children's Concert Series - Andy Happel
Saturday, April 7th, 2018
10:30 AM
Portland Public Library
5 Monument Sq, Portland, ME 04101
Featuring MAMM instructor, Andy Happel and MAMM's very own MAMMOTH String Band!

Maine Academy of Modern Music is thrilled to launch the second season of "The Kids Are Alright", a family-friendly local music series aimed at encouraging children’s involvement in the musical arts. This series will take place, in partnership with the Sam L. Cohen Children’s Library on the first Saturday of the month (aside from September 9th), September through December at 10:30am in the Portland Public Library’s Rines Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public thanks to partial funding from the Davis Family Foundation.

In addition to live performances by some of the area’s top talent, each event will feature a “Get-To-Know-Your-Local-Musician” component that will allow parents and children a chance to ask the performer(s) questions about what it is like to be a musician in Maine. Likewise, MAMM will host an “Instrument Petting Zoo” so that everyone will have a chance to try out some of the instruments that they will have seen used on stage during the performance that day.

Andy Happel is a concert violinist and fiddler who has shared the stage with symphonies, pop stars and country music luminaries alike. He is the directory of MAMMOTH Strings.
The MAMMOTH Strings program will offer students a unique chamber music experience. In duos, trios, or quartets young string players will have an opportunity to play in the equivalent of a classical music “rock band”. Under the guidance of local professional musicians and educators, students will have a chance to collaborate with other like-minded young musicians, allowing for opportunities to build on individual skills while fostering a sense of responsibility to their peers. From traditional to folk, pop to rock, students will be actively involved in setting the musical direction of their individual groups.
