Musical Madness for Kids series kicks off at Ponte Vedra Library


The Musical Madness for Kids series, sponsored by the Friends of the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library, kickstarted Jan. 24 with 74 attendees.  

The woodwind quintet of the Jacksonville Symphony performed excerpts from Bach, Mozart and modern (and living) composers, interspersed with dialogue about themselves and their instruments.

Although the event was geared toward elementary school students, both young and old attended the Musical Madness for Kids event at the library.   

As the series continues, the library will host the string quartet of the symphony Feb. 21 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. for a show of upbeat tunes from the 1910s in recognition of “Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Luisitania” by Erik Larson, the 2018 St. Johns Reads selection for February. All are welcome.

The library will also host the brass quintet of the symphony March 7 and the string quartet again May 9. Both events are aimed at elementary school kids, but all are welcome.
