Hoist your sails and brace yourselves for the musical high seas!

Music of Telemann, Purcell and Morley performed by Emily Hale and Simone Trollmo. 45 minutes. 

Pajama Concerts share live chamber music and classic children’s literature in a relaxed and inclusive setting with children and their families. Blankets, pillows, and favorite stuffed animals are welcome, and a bedtime snack follows!
