More About Brecksville Concerts For Kids

The Akron Symphony Orchestra’s popular Concerts for Kids series returns with Tubby the Tuba on May 14 at the Brecksville Community Center. This 45-minute performance is geared toward children ages 2-6 and features live music by the Akron Symphony Orchestra and conductor Eric Benjamin.

Tubby the Tuba tells the tale of Tubby, a tuba who longs to have a bigger role in the orchestra. After being laughed at by his fellow instruments — including a piccolo who informs Tubby that composers, “never write melodies for tubas. It just isn’t done!” – a dejected Tubby retreats to a riverbank, where he meets a musically inclined, deep-voiced bullfrog. The frog starts to hum, sharing with Tubby a most original and memorable tune. Soon, Tubby is playing along, convinced that he has found exactly what he needs. Tubby returns to his orchestra the next day, impresses the visiting conductor and wins over his fellow instruments, who all join Tubby in a symphony built around his tune.

The performance will be highlighted by Ken Heinlein, ASO’s principal tuba in the role of Tubby, with narration by Dennis O’Connell of The Magical Theatre Company.

In addition to Tubby the Tuba, the concert will feature a variety of popular, age-appropriate pieces of classical music.

A ticket is required for every person through the door, regardless of age. Tickets are general admission and cost just $6 for children and adults. All attendees sit on the floor during the performance.

Support for the Brecksville Concerts for Kids performance is provided by Mayor Jerry N. Hruby and the Brecksville Center for the Arts, which is a non-profit, multidisciplinary art center dedicated to the education, inspiration, encouragement, and support of artists and art enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. The center welcomes residents of Brecksville and surrounding communities to join us in discovering, exploring, enhancing, and promoting art of all types through affordable instruction, student scholarships, community collaborations, and special events.
