McGRATHPR.com – South Shore Conservatory’s (SSC) Wacky Wednesdays family concert series presents SSC’s ImagineARTS Band in the Jane Carr Amphitheater on August 1 at 10 am. This concert is the final of four family-friendly Wednesday morning concerts at One Conservatory Drive in Hingham this summer.
Wacky Wednesdays is one of two series in the Conservatory’s diverse Summer Spotlight outdoor summer entertainment series. The family series is sponsored by The Harold and Avis Goldstein Trust, with WATD as the media partner. Summer Spotlight also includes Evenings Under the Stars Saturday evening concerts.
During the school year, members of SSC’s ImagineARTS Band share their favorite stories and songs with Brockton kindergarten students, through ImagineARTS, SSC’s arts-based reading readiness program which is offered free in the Brockton Public Schools. SSC invites audiences to join ImagineARTS band members in moving, grooving, and crooning along to tunes such as “See How I’m Jumping,” “She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain,” and “Funga Alafia.” This concert, great for ages 3-7 years, concludes with a special presentation of the popular children’s story Pete the Cat and the New Guy.
New this year are food trucks at every Summer Spotlight performance. Interspersed throughout the 2018 season are Sadie Mae’s Cupcake Cafe, Rolling Roost Food Truck, and Mom on the Go Food Truck, offering a variety of foods such as indulgent cupcakes, designer grilled cheese, barbecue pulled pork, steak burritos, strawberry avocado salad, couscous salad with cherries, and avocado toast.
