The Kids Are Alright

The Sam L. Cohen Children’s Library is excited to host the Maine Academy of Modern Music’s  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 on the first Saturday of the month (except for our  December 2018 concert) at 10:30 in the Portland Public Library’s Rines Auditorium. 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. The Library will provide concert attendees with resources about the importance of music in the  early literacy and brain development of young children.
