Open House at the Hollywood Bowl

Starts July 8, 2002

Open House at the Hollywood Bowl concert series is back this summer for its 34th season. This six-week festival is packed with quality music, storytelling and workshops from July 8 through Aug. 16.

This year the theme, “From Sea to Shining Sea: A Celebration of American Music,” brings performers that will take children on a journey through American music, frompatriotic and folk songs to jazz and classical music. Each performance includes three age-appropriate sessions. For ages 3 and 4, Open House begins at 9:30 a.m. with a Parent-and-Me Music Making interactive performance that includes a short concert by the week’s scheduled musical ensemble. For ages 5 to 10, the sessions begin at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. with host David Prather and the performers giving a 45-minute show. (Monday performances are translated in American Sign Language).

Art workshops are held at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m., and are conducted by mime, artist and teacher Judy Garratt. New this year is a “musical petting zoo” that allows children to meet the artists and play instruments. Following the shows, kids can watch the morning’s orchestra rehearsal for that evening’s concert.
