Designed for children ages 3-8, our Kids Club concert series features performances that encourage your child in music.  Kids Club is the perfect way to introduce your child to a lifetime of enjoyment and appreciation of the performing arts. Children's Story Corner features two new works for young audiences: Pondery by Nihan Yesil is a one-act chamber opera based on an original short story about a girl who loves to dream. One night, Lilly starts watching the shadows cast by the moon on her bedroom wall. As the shadows get livelier and look less like regular shadows, curious, Lilly decides to explore them. The opera takes place in Lilly's dreamland which is situated behind a life-size shadow screen.  Her new friends and guides, the spirit of the pond, the weird twins, and the king of the shadowland, lead her through her adventures. Most of the story takes place in this shadow realm where the performers present the story as silhouettes creating an alternate reality. Numera by Ryan Oldham is a brief chamber opera in three acts.  This work will also feature projected shadow art from Ms. Yesil.  It takes place in the imaginary land of Numera, a land inhabited by two shapes: the triangle and the square.  They get along for the most part, but do have some neighborly squabbles.   One day, a new shape arrives in Numera: the circle.  Both the square and the triangle are infatuated with the circle.  Ultimately, the circle has to choose
