Bari Koral & Oran Etkin Play Newport Festivals Foundation Annual Family Concert

Newport Festivals Foundation Family Concert: July 30, 2014 @ Fort Adams State Park, Newport, RI
The Newport Festivals Foundation held their annual family concert.  Oran Etkin kicked things off with his program Oran Etkin's Timbalooloo: Wake Up, Clarinet! representing the jazz side of things.  The set was educational and incredibly fun introducing Clara and her Mama Tuba.  Etkin assembled/woke up Clara with children from the audience shouting out help before launching into a set that had the kids dancing and parents thoroughly entertained.

The Bari Koral Family Rock Band represented the folk side of things.  Koral and her band had the kids dancing and following song prompts.  The kids happily danced, jumped and performed yoga poses when called for.  

When the Newport Festivals Foundation says "family" they mean it.  This was a program that was easily enjoyed by the children as well as the adults they brought with them.
