Chamber music series for kids continues successful season

Chocolate Chip Chamber Music continues its fourth season as a children’s chamber music series with a classical string quartet program entitled “The Knights of Stringbury,” March 6 at 10 and 11:30 a.m., and March 7 at 4 p.m. in the Lower Hall of Old First Reformed Church, 126 Seventh Avenue (corner of Carroll Street) in Park Slope. Tickets are $10; visit www.chocolatechipmusic.org.

The March program finds the series’ affable character, Baker Bobbie, dressed as a princess. She stumbles upon a sleeping squire (cellist of the quartet), alone in the enchanted forest. He has been separated from his accompanying knights (other three musicians) on their quest to carry out a decree from the king: a dragon in the area must be stopped from hoarding the chocolate chip cookies, known and loved throughout the kingdom.

Dynamic string players from The Academy, a partnership of Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School and the Weill Music Institute (ACJW), perform music from the well-loved Canon in D by Johann Pachelbel to quartet movements by Haydn, Mozart and Schubert.

Following this magical, musical fairy tale, a sampling of both the instruments and a fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie send concertgoers off on a sweet note.

Tickets are $10; visit www.chocolatechipmusic.org or call 347-768-7998. A sing-along prelude begins 20 minutes before concert times.
