Pajama Jamboree Season Concludes May 17 with “I’ve Got Rhythm”
Concert to Feature Latin/African Music with Special Guest Julio Pabon
Milwaukee, Wis.—Festival City Symphony (FCS) will conclude its “Pajama Jamboree” series this season with “I’ve Got Rhythm” — Spring Pajama Jamboree, a free concert on Wed., May 17, 2017, at 7:00 pm in the Bradley Pavilion of the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.
The concert will feature music with a Latin/African flavor, with local performing artist Julio Pabon, an award-winning percussionist, singer, and educator. Pabon will be joined by select members of the Afro-Cuban and Latin Jazz group De La Buena, which is one of the many professional ensembles to which Pabon belongs.
The concert will close with the popular Festival City Symphony tradition of young audience members conducting the orchestra’s finale.
Unlike previous years, attendees should enter through the main entrance on 929 N. Water Street. If they park in the Marcus Center lot, they are welcome to use the third level skywalk.
All “Pajama Jamboree” concerts have free admission. Hosted by Education Director Jayne Perkins, these popular programs welcome children and their parents or grandparents to attend in casual dress or pajamas. The audience is invited to bring a blanket and sit on the floor, up close to “meet” the orchestra. Conventional seating is also available. Pajama Jamborees are best suited for children in K4 through fifth grade.
