The Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) is hosting free family friendly organ concerts on Saturday, April 23. The concerts will take families on a musical journey with kids’ favorite songs and show tunes.
From the Savanna in Africa, down to the depths of the ocean and into space and beyond, music from favorite children’s movies of the past decades will be played on the GRPM’s Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Organ. The Organ features three keyboards, pedals, 380 stops and controls, 30 ranks of pipes, seven tuned percussions, 15 traps and effects and a 20 horsepower blower. Kids will enjoy all the bells and whistles of the Organ in this performance.
“Our organ concerts typically appeal to a more adult audience and we are excited to be doing something new and fresh for families,” said Kate Moore, Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations at the GRPM. “These concerts will be an engaging, educational and fun experience for kids of all ages.”
The organ concerts will take place at 11 a.m. and again at 1 p.m. in the Museum’s Meijer Theater on Saturday, April 23. Each concert will be approximately 1-hour long. Family organ concerts are included with general admission to the Museum. The Meijer Theater can seat 255 people, and seats will be available on a first come basis.
