TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Join the Tucson Symphony Orchestra's Flute Viola Harp Trio for some detective work at the next Just for Kids program, Emily and the Ghost Flute. 

Performances are Saturday, Dec. 6 at 10 a.m. and 1:15 a.m. at the Tucson Symphony Center (2175 N. Sixth Ave., just south of Grant Road). There is plenty of free parking.

Just for Kids is a popular series of fun, informal, interactive chamber ensemble concerts lasting 45 to 50 minutes. The performances use humor, story-telling, demonstrations and participation to introduce classical music and orchestral instruments in an entertaining and kid-friendly environment to families including those with very young children. The programs are presented on the first Saturday morning of each month from October through March. 

Emily and the Ghost Flute by TSO violinist Michael Fan, is about a bright and imaginative child who goes on a high-spirited adventure investigating things that go bump in the night. Emily hears music from the house next door and thinks there are very scary things going on.  The audience will be asked to help the Flute Viola Harp Trio figure out if these things really are scary, or if there's another explanation. Music by harpist and composer Marcel Granjany, John Rutter, Heitor Villa Lobos and flute player and composer Louis Moyse will be performed to listen for clues and practice detective work before the audience will be asked to join the Trio singing “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “The Ants Go Marching One by One.”

The TSO Just for Kids series receives support from the Diamond Family Music Education Endowment Fund and the Arizona Commission on the Arts.
