Join us for a live, colorfully illustrated concert performed by renowned Steinway Artist Jenny Lin who will take us on a musical journey through Melody’s Mostly Musical Day!
Melody’s Mostly Musical Day is a recording of classical piano works from Mozart to Chopin to Gershwin to Chick Corea that follows a child’s musical day from breakfast to bedtime. Melody’s Mostly Musical Day at Sugar Hill Museum is the concert version of the recording incorporating live music, storytelling, props and the screening of the illustrations from the original story book. The show will be followed by inspiring art-making activities for the entire family!

About Story Time: Tales on Sugar Hill
Story Time: Tales on Sugar Hill is a series of curated programs that aim to provide children with a meaningful, interactive and fun art experience. Grounded in our curatorial mission to share stories through theater, music, dance and visual art, as well as oral and literary forms, Story Time presents tales, fables, histories, and myths that genuinely reflect the diverse ethnic and cultural milieu of our surroundings. Story Time also leverages the Museum's own art exhibitions to foster richer engagement with, and a deeper understanding of, public art already on view. Held every second Saturday of each month, each two-hour presentation includes a participatory art activity facilitated by teaching artists from the community, so children not only experience others’ stories, but also reflect on what they see and hear, and create and share their own stories.
