PhilharMONSTER

Goblins and Ghouls!

There is SO MUCH to hear and do this Halloween weekend. First off, we are super excited for the return of PhilharMONSTER – a spooky movie music concert at Symphony Space.

PhilharmonsterWaddyThompson

We love listening to movie soundtracks. My boys like the feeling of being a little bit scared but not really having anything to be afraid of. Film scores can be exciting and thought provoking. When the tempo speeds up into a loud frenzy of crashing strings, brass and percussion, my boys shout out with exuberance “What could be happening now?!” What’s great is that they can just use their imagination to plot the scene (which usually ranges from car chases to superhero and villain battles). The music is super engaging. The power of an orchestra – to enhance one’s emotions and to maintain a level of heighten suspense – is an amazing feat and it has gotten my kids to embrace orchestral music.

PhilharMONSTER selections include Star Wars (a favorite in our house) and Harry Potter, as well as “Mars” from The Planets by Holst, “March to the Scaffold” by Berlioz – incidentally, there’s a sweet tale illustrated by Jan Brett called Berlioz the Bear about Berlioz Bear and his bandmates getting stuck while on their way to perform. Will they get to the concert on time (cue suspenseful soundtrack)? – and Norwegian composer’ Edvard Grieg‘s “In the Hall of the Mountain King”.

For those who don’t recognize the name of Grieg’s piece, you’ll know it when you hear it. It’s quintessential scary music, so successfully chilling it has been covered and used countless times in commercials and films. It was the basis for the Inspector Gadget theme song, inspired the title and scene of an episode of Mad Men and is hummed in an episode of Orange is the New Black. Check out this 1959 cartoon, HALL OF THE MOUNTAIN KING featuring the Grieg’s piece. Some may recognize the music at the beginning as it was often used in The Smurfs!

Performing will be the InterSchool Orchestras of New York (ISO) Symphony and Concert Orchestra, the top ensemble among ISO’s eight major groups and one of the leading youth orchestras in the New York City. Musicians are between the ages of 12 – 19. To add to the fun, the musicians will be wearing spooky Halloween costumes and encourage the audience to do the same.

Also this weekend:

Dia de los Muertos Concert with Bilingual Birdies
A bilingual concert celebrating the day of the dead will be free at the NY Public Library at 3pm on Saturday. RSVP suggested: ss@bilingualbirdies.com

PitchBlak Brass Band at the Brooklyn Museum
This Brooklyn-based 10-piece band whose style and sound is a throwback to hip-hop from the ’80s will be performing at 5pm as part of Target First Saturdays.

For those who like BBQ with their tunes, Live Family-Friendly Music from “The Three Gentlemen” – a foursome of roots and country will be performing at Hill Country in Brooklyn starting at noon. Be sure to get the “moist” brisket.

The Boogers

I love the crispness in the air, and russety pallet that announces the arrival of Fall. Kids are in a frenzy planning Halloween costumes and noting every home that’s already swathed in spider webs. Our weekend plans now include apple picking and pumpkin harvests. You can do it all at Terhune Orchards in Princeton, NJ, where they have Corn Stalk Mazes, farm animals, cider donuts and also feature live local music.

If you don’t feel like leaving NYC, you can get your dose of pumpkin picking ($5 each)  – along with a slew of other activities – Coney Island style, every weekend through October 26th at Luna Park.

TheBoogersWe’re planning our pumpkin picking for Sunday because this Saturday we plan to ROCK with The Boogers at Symphony Space. While some kindie bands offer a sampling of various musical styles, The Booger are pure “Hey! Ho! Let’s Go”, punk rock. If CBGBs did matinees for families, this would have been the house band. One of my favorites is the brilliant reinvention of The Ramones’ song “Beat on a Brat”. Not kid friendly, right? With The Boogers, it’s “My Baseball Bat” and it’s catchy and fun and no one has to get hurt. Other familiar tunes such as “London Bridges”, “Pop Goes the Weasel” and “The Big Rock Candy Mountain” get a rockin’ makeover. Songs are short and fast paced and authentically punk rock. “I Just Wanna Play” captures the rebellious but legitimate rants of our little hooligans with the lyric “I don’t want the pressure of an overloaded schedule!”. Check out that video then grab your Converse kicks and head to Symphony Space.

Want to WIN TICKETS for a family of four to this Saturday’s concert?! Send an email with the title of a Ramones’ song to melissa [at] supersonickids.com. Receive extra entries when you LIKE or SHARE this post on Facebook.

Does your little rocker want to make his/her own music? Is your child too old to enjoy tot music classes but not quite mature enough for serious lessons? The Brooklyn Music Factory now offers semi-private classes for 4 & 5 year olds. “Mini Keys” gives youngin’s a chance to explore the different instruments in a band. It introduces the basic concepts of music making such as rhythm, harmony and melody while having a super fun time and being part of a group.

What else is going on this weekend?

Hansel and Gretel’s Halloween Adventure at the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre in Central Park adds a new chapter to the famous sibling’s story. With mermaids, monsters, pirates, vampires and a fabulous witch. Music composed by the very accomplished Daryl Kojak.

Fela Frolic! Is an all day, all ages party that offers (free until 8pm) African dance and Drum workshops and a performance (6pm) by Afrobeat Brooklynites ZONGO JUNCTION.

Stay tuned for more updates, info & giveaways by LIKING us on Facebook.

Hope to see you out there!

More Wonderful than Good

I haven’t posted in awhile so I hope you’ve had a chance to check out the Super Sonic Kids Facebook page. I’ll continue to update the page regularly as concert season is in full bloom.

goldilocksStarting off today though with shameless self promotion. This Sunday at 4pm, I’ll be at Cobble Hill’s BookCourt with the The Good Ms. Padgett, who is much more wonderful than good. She’ll be singing her dynamic and whimsical story songs and I’ll be doing an interactive reading of my new Goldilocks and the Three Bears book from my “Les Petits Fairytales” series. Would be delightful to see you there!

Speaking of fairytales…Hansel and Gretel will be at Avery Fisher Hall this Saturday and tickets are still available. Is that brother and sister team as innocent as they appear or is there another side of the story? The Little Orchestra Society puts a new spin on the tale with music by Engelbert Humperdinck and a re-imagined book by Craig Shemin. These “Happy Concerts” are designed to foster a love of classical music in the next generation.

Pipe bands, Scottish clans, Scottish terriers, and more! It’s Tartan week so grab some haggis, get your plaid on hit the parade on Saturday. The Scottish pipe band, consists of a section of pipers (playing the Great Highland Bagpipe), a section of snare drummers, several tenor drummers and usually one, though occasionally two, bass drummers. Have you ever heard 100s of pipers? Your little wee won’t forget what the bag pipe sounds like after this barrage

An all day Brooklyn family event at Littlefield on Saturday features Brazilian drumming, a set by Captain Kirk Douglas and Mark Kelley of The Roots, Michael Hearst’s Songs for Unusual Creatures and lots more. All proceeds will benefit PS 295, the School of Arts & Culture, which lies at the intersection of the South Slope, Windsor Terrace, and Sunset Park.

AstrograssDondreStuetly_miniAstrograss plays bluegrass, old time, and folk music at Symphony Space on Sunday. Concerts often feature sing-a-longs, and high-energy fiddle hoedowns. The Parents’ Choice Silver Award winners cover American folk songs such as ”Oh, Susanna” and “Hot Corn, Cold Corn” as well as originals that delve into familiar kid topics like Brooklyn neighborhoods, spelling and playgrounds.

An army of young Noel Pointer Foundation musicians from 26 different NYC schools will come together, for ONE DAY ONLY, to play their string instruments for each other in FIDDLEFEST!

Elizabeth Mitchell will spread irresistible folk-rock cheer at The Jewish Museum on Sunday with her daughter Storey and husband Daniel Little in this one-of-a kind family band. Hear cherished folk classics and soulful originals from albums Catch the Moon and Blue Clouds and more. With very special guests The M Shanghai String Band.

The Giant Dial

radioI know I sound 100 when I tell the kids about the tribulations of TV watching during my childhood years. There was static, that horizontal line that pushed the picture up and off screen repeatedly and, most notably, the getting up and physically grabbing of the giant dial – like it was a can opener – to switch to one of six channel options. Not to mention that weird color contract dial! There was no pressing a button to pause so I could get up to pee or rewinding to watch a funny part again and again. Ah, kids today don’t know how good they have it. But then you talk with someone who grew up sitting by the radio with their whole family riveted in some great drama which unfolded only in dialogue, music and sound effects and their reminiscences sounds like proud nostalgia. The absence of images only claiming a firmer grasp on their imaginations and attentions. Wondering how your sensory overloaded kids would fair? Go find out. This weekend, the Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol will be performed as a live radio play in Carroll Park’s Robert Acito Park House (the brick structure close to the Smith St. side). Set in the 1940’s, seven actors will bring to life thirty four characters, as well as the soundscape of Victorian era Britain. Directed and adapted by Beth Ann Hopkins with music by Ruark Downey (Roots with Ruark). There are 5pm shows but not specifically for kids so introduce Ebenezer Scrooge at your discretion.

It’s easy to overload the senses especially during the holiday season when NYC turns up the lights and tourists and locals alike are in the mood to warm up at a big production. After giving your eyes a radio play rest, you don’t have to look far for a spectacle. The very exciting Mother Africa at the New Vic brings musicians, acrobats and dancers in gorgeous fabrics and traditional masks all showcasing African tradition and artistry. This is a the whole package with lights, projections, stilt walkers from Tanzania, jugglers from Ethiopia and a renowned contortionist from Kenya. Afro-beats courtesy of the infectious djembe and strum of the mbira keep the party going. Get there early to make your own drum.

Grammy nominations were announced last week and Elizabeth Mitchell snagged her well deserved second nomination. The Smithsonian Folkways Recording artist’s record release concert at Symphony Space (with husband Daniel Littleton, daughter Storey, Natalie Merchant and Dan Zanes to boot) is almost sold out but “The Sounding Joy” album is a great consolation prize if you miss the show. An exploration of Christmas and solstice songs from the American folk tradition will evoke an era (before the commercialization of Christmas) when gathering together and contemplation during the holiday season were paramount. (wow, just like the radio plays. I smell a theme in this post!)

Also this weekend, the Poppy Seed Players bring David & Goliath to the Kaufman Center. Featuring the Kaufman Kids, students from Kaufman Music Center’s Lucy Moses School and Special Music School, find out what happens when a boy with a slingshot meets up with a giant. It’s anyone’s guess…

Give 6 actors and a pianist a simple idea and they turn it into a catchy, funny story song. The Story Pirates bring their “greatest hits” to Housing Works on Saturday. Story topics come from anywhere (did you just say purple pandas eating pickles?) as the pirates celebrate creative writing by students from coast to coast in their sketch comedy mini musicals. SNL for kids!

If you’re holiday shopping this weekend you can multi-task and take in a kindie favorite performance while supporting Brooklyn’s Public School 133 all at the same time. Artisans with an emphasis on hand-made, local and sustainable goods will be available at the Holiday Market and award winning NYC singer/songwriter Suzi Shelton rocks their new auditorium.

And if you need a gift for a little one, don’t forget about “Les Petits Fairytales”. A perfect introduction to the magic of the world of fairytales.

“In addition to the books’ emphasis on interactivity, the glittery covers provide a nice touch-and-feel aspect, the bright colors are eye-catching, and the toddler-sized characters are relatable.”– The Horn Book

Goldilocks” and “Little Red Riding Hood” are now available for pre-order (and delivery by drone) on Amazon. Brooklynites can find all six titles at our favorite neighborhood bookstore: Book Court!

Because there wasn’t enough NY in an Issac Mizrahi production at the Guggenheim!

On the heels of the newly released and highly sought after “Goodbye to All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York ” anthology, I’m going to counter with this weekends list of extraordinary events. And if it isn’t fabulous enough that all this is happening in our backyard, some of the biggest shows have been rewritten to be more NYC – centric with our famed city as the revised backdrop. Because there wasn’t enough New York in an Issac Mizrahi (born in Brooklyn) production at the Guggenheim!

peter_wolf_2013-205If I were to describe a blue jay dressed in a baseball uniform with sweat socks and Nike pointe shoes what classic tale comes to mind? The answer – Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf (of course!) with costumes and sets designed by Issac Mizrahi and music by the Juilliard Ensemble. While Prokofiev might have imagined a Russian forest milieu, this version is in Central Park, complete with boulders! This year along with his usual narrating, Mizrahi also directs the actors. I’m not going to take up more time describing this popular annual performance at the Guggenheim except to say that it’s 30 minutes long, $35 and as of this writing there are only tickets left for one of the 10 performances. Get them here.

No need to fret if you miss Issac’s Peter and the Wolf, there is a bounty of great seasonally appropriate performances to catch this weekend. You can still snag tickets to the annual Yorkville Nutcracker. As in Issac’s big show, this unique rendition opts for Central Park as one of the sets along with New York landmarks Gracie Mansion and the New York Botanical Garden. Featuring young dancers from around New York City in lovely costumes, dancing alongside New York City Ballet principals.

It’s not all about big ticket events in this admittedly expensive city. The popular Lloyd H. Miller’s monthly sing-a-long variety show at the beautiful Brooklyn Historical Society is FREE on Saturday. There will be several musical guests including the charming Amelia Robinson of Mil’s Trills and circus performer Justin Wood. This month, what’s Lloyd singing about? Hmm, … oh yes – Brooklyn! The Historical Society has a growing exhibit about Hurricane Sandy and so songs will celebrate the rich maritime history of the beloved borough. Expect sea shanties!. Reserve your spot for “Songs of Sandy and the Sea!”.

Jon Samson performs original family music at THE BROOKLYN CONSERVATORY OF MUSIC RECITAL HALL. The award-winning children’s composer, performer and music therapist writes clever and catchy songs that parents find themselves singing along with their kiddies. The show supports the music therapy program at BCM.

THE 3RD ANNUAL ROCKIN’ HOLIDAY SHOW has a stellar line-up on Sunday. With The Pop-Ups, Tim Kubart (of Tim and the Space Cadets), Natali Elizabeth Weiss of baby DJ school and the debut of The Screaming Keys, 4-6 year old Little Rock students. Then, a presentation on how to stage dive while you still have baby teeth. Okay, that part is not true.

There are a ton of NYC spots to spend some quality lap time with the “Man with a Bag” but why not catch him with The Philhallmonics. The ladies swing and sing their way through holiday favorites and Broadway hits at the New York Public Library of the Performing Arts (Lincoln Center). Joined by a three-piece band and a visit from Santa. FREE!

There is still SO MUCH MORE!!! Karen K & the Jitterbugs will be at The 1st Annual Winter Jam Brrr ee at Families First in Cobble Hill Brooklyn. The 10:30am concert leaves plenty of time to hit a whole bunch of other things.

You can end your day with Pegasus Warning, performing otherworldly sounds, electronic music, and soulful beats and Target 1st Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum.

The lovely Suzi Shelton performs at Shapeshifter (Santa will be there too!) And Dan Zanes brings his friends to the 3rd Annual Holiday Sing-a-long at City Winery.

** ALSO NOTE – The Good Ms. Padgett show at Jalopy is CANCELLED as poor Ms. Padgett has broken her leg! We wish her a speedy recovery.

Pheww. It’s a get out there and take it all in kind of a weekend. And for those who decided to leave NYC – I’m looking at you Sari Botton – this is a great weekend to visit!

The Sound of Crickets

A giant snowflake hangs mid-air above the intersection, a signal that tis the season. That suspended snowflake serves as a giant reminder – ice-skating rinks are now open, window displays are about to become an extravaganza, train shows are in motion, big trees are up and The Nutcracker, the Rockettes, Peter and the Wolf, Firebird and all the usual winter favorites are back. Does your family have a go to Winter event? Share it with us on Facebook! We’ll be bundled up but we will be out there…

firebirdThe Firebird was Igor Stravinsky’s first project, written in 1910, and it made him an overnight sensation. Based on Russian folktales, The Firebird tell the story of Prince Ivan and the magical glowing bird that can be both a blessing and a curse to its owner. With The Little Orchestra Society’s non-ballet version, the gorgeous score comes to life with the use of light, shadows, dance and Bunraku-style puppetry. David Alan Miller, Music Director of the Albany Symphony Orchestra, will be guest conductor and will also treat the audience to other works that inspired young Stravinsky. Special attention will be given to showing wee thespians different ways sound can paint pictures and tell stories. A pre-concert discovery guide helps the littles understand these key concepts.

If a trip to the Caribbean isn’t on your winter calendar, take your mind on an island vacation with Asheba, a musical storyteller who specializes in calypso, the musical and folkloric oral tradition of Trinidad. Steel drums and guitar accompany stories of hope and happiness, which range from original lullabies to fast tempo tunes to remakes of children’s classics.

There’s a little party on Kids Thirteen, wedging itself in between programs like Curious George and Sesame Street. Meredith LeVande is ring master of this fiesta with her Monkey Monkey Music videos. Her cheery, pop, interactive fun will be at Brooklyn’s Central Library‘s Dweck Center on Saturday (Free!).

Haven’t gotten you red velvet rope fix in lately? No need to worry about your name not being on this list. FUZIPOP! boasts open season on exclusive nightclubs by transforming them into kid-friendly party spaces. Nine year old DJ Kai Song (certainly you recognize the name from Vogue Bambini), who was named 1 of 30 DJs to watch by Vibe Magazine, keeps the “it” crowd of 6-12 year olds on the dance floor. Perhaps even a kiddie flash mob? Saturday’s event is at Pink Elephant on 8th street which I find a tad ironic because as a 13 year old I went to a club on 8th street called The Saint. I guess things haven’t changed that much.

The Trusty Sidekick Theater Company heads to The Old Stone House in Park Slope on Saturday with songs to ring in the holiday of thanks. A concert by the Itty Biddies and pre-show puppetry, crafts and songwriting round out the fun.

Finally, listen to the sound of crickets at 2 different speeds. The slowed down speed reveals an incredible human like sound. Check it out!

Techno Pop Fairy

581773_10151691380532681_403693446_nHope everyone had a wonderful, fun filled and safe Halloween yesterday! Much of the conversation at drop off this morning had to do with candy and what to do with all of it. Some parents have a 1-a-day policy, others let their kids binge on the day and that’s the end of it. A couple of parents were considering a buy back – 10 cents for every piece of candy. I saw at least one kid collecting candy last night that he then just gave back out on his stoop. If your kids have way more candy than you will let them eat you may want to look into this program which sends the candy to US troops. If anyone has any other interesting ideas (a giant candy mountain display?) please forward!

elskaWe’re going to continue in the make-believe fun by setting sail to a land under the reign of a techno pop fairy – Elska! You will be taken to a magical place where a soft arctic fox might fall asleep on your head. Elska’s music is charming and innocent like a peek into the brain of a sweet, happy little girl who has learned that her “mind is full of ideas”. Wildly creative, fanciful ideas. Backed by modern synth and gentle vibes, your little nymphs will be enchanted. Check out Elska on Sunday at the Judith Charles Gallery as part of Odd Harmonics, a month-long contemporary art show and performance series centered around a series of custom-built sculptural Theremins.

What else is happening this weekend?

Dog On Fleas (Saturday at Symphony Space) play their old-timey rock, jazz and funk. It’s super fun, upbeat and inventive music with songs like “Has Anybody Seen My Shoes”, “There’s a Band in my Head” and “Invisible Friends”.

The Rockdoves (Saturday at the Brooklyn Public Library) are a folksy duo with lovely harmonies. Their catchy song “From the Birds” has a rock ballad vibe and is about birds singing good morning.

TARGET 1st SATURDAYS at The Brooklyn Museum: The Fashion World Jean Paul Gaultier show brings Brooklyn-based electro dream pop band Au Revoir Simone for upbeat and danceable melodies paired with a smooth lo-fi sound. Music starts at 5pm but it gets crowded so arrive early.

Hope to see you out there!

Meaty Hooks

I sing to my kids A LOT. I don’t have a particularly good voice but that doesn’t deter me and as of yet, the kids haven’t noticed. I sing songs I liked when I was younger – Fleetwood Mac, Queen – songs I like now – MGMT, Arcade Fire – songs I make up throughout the day – “You have Spinach in your Hair” (there may be a album in the making) – and songs that are part of my kids’ classic repertoire like “This Little Light of Mine”, “Hush Little Baby” and “All the Pretty Horses”. Oh the list goes on because as I mentioned, I sing at, I mean to my kids throughout the day. I’m always looking for new material too so when an album like S.S. Brooklyn, Lloyd Miller’s solo debut comes my way, I’ve seriously scored.

lloydhmillere5c0c4Give S.S. Brooklyn a casual play and you’ll hear a fun for the whole family album, with catchy choruses and meaty hooks but a closer listen will offer much more. Producer Dean Jones’ gentle touch allows kids to notice some of the quirkier instrumental sounds and thoughtful lyrics. First off, there are the Brooklyn sing-along favorites like “Honk Honk (Major Deegan)” which was already a known entity in our house because my oldest son sang along to it as a bouncing baby, on my lap, at our neighborhood’s weekly series (Lloyd Miller still does these so if you have a little one at home, go experience the fun and bonding).

The first track, I’m Gonna Light Up the World” is an instant classic with a lovely message, a song I would add to my classic repertoire list. It wouldn’t be a record from the frontman of the Deedle Deedle Dees without the educational numbers. Many of the songs sparked some great conversation in our house. Listening to “The Gowanus Canal” lyrics freaked my 6 year old out because he now understands that it “flows into the New Yorker harbor”. For those that don’t know the canal, it’s…ick. He also asked me all about Ghandi because of the lyric “if y’all get greedy, give it away like Ghandi” in “Do the Tub Tub Tubman”. Songs like “Them Bones” with its’ smooth bass line infer some anatomy basics and are not without humor – “the head bone is connected to the trombone” is followed by Dean Jones’ trombone.

There are also lots of familiar shout outs for Brooklynite tykes to get excited about in the sweet ballad “Carroll Street Bridge”, and in the easy listening “Brooklyn by Bike” (where Lloyd manages to slip in some history). The song that stands out for me is “Seventeen Years – (a cicada love song)” with funky and awesome sound effects. There’s what sounds like slide guitar to me (which may not be slide guitar) that made me think of Steve Miller’s song “The Joker” but that’s just the weird soundtrack in my head perhaps. Capping off the album is the charming title song “S.S. Brooklyn” which affirms that “we’re all in the boat and we have to get along”. An idea I try to teach my kids and remind myself of daily.

See Lloyd Miller kick off the Hip Tot season at Shapeshifter Lab on Sunday.

Also this weekend: On Saturday, Mister G – who is on the Latin Grammy ballot for Best Children’s Recording of the year – will be bringing his bilingual “ABC Fiesta” to Symphony Space.

Ylvis_-_The_Fox__What_Does_the_Fox_Say____Official_music_video_HD__-_YouTubeIs it the lyrics that make a song kid friendly? The rhythm? If you haven’t seen the What Does the Fox Say? video that puts a hilarious spin on that already blurry line, check it out!
