“As a parent who loves live music, you kind of want your kids to love live music, too.”
WTMD, Towson University’s public radio station, launched a new concert series for a very different demographic: children. “Saturday Morning Tunes” addresses a WTMD blind spot Sam Sessa, the station’s Baltimore music coordinator and father of two noticed, according to the Baltimore Sun.
The concert series started with a test run in April 2016 with local six-piece band Milkshake and, more recently, Joanie Leeds, a New York-based performer who had the 100 children in attendance unleashing their inner “rock stars.”
Admission includes juice boxes and snacks.
The February artist was 123 Andres (pronounced Uno, Dos, Tres, Andres), a bilingual duo of Andres Salguero and his wife, Christina Sanabria. On March 18, the Baltimore beat-boxing duo Baby Beats will perform, and on April 1, Little Miss Ann & Amy D will perform. The final concert will be on May 20 and feature Danny Weinkauf and his Red Pants Band.
The February and March shows are already sold out. Tickets for the April and May shows are currently on sale.
