Move over peanut butter and jelly (at least until lunch), it’s time for the Peanut Butter & Jam Sessions! Designed especially for young children and their accompanying grownups, Chatham Baroque‘s Peanut Butter & Jam Sessions will have you and your toddlers swaying to the lush and intricate music that was popularized in Europe during the 17th and 18th centuries. Think: composers like Vivaldi, Bach and Handel.

Lively, informal and educational, Peanut Butter & Jam Sessions include performances that get kids singing, dancing, playing and storytelling—with plenty of wiggling.

Next up this Saturday, November 5th for Chatham Baroque’s ongoing Peanut Butter & Jam Session is Meet Miss Melody and Miss Harmony. During the unique concert, children will learn how melody and harmony work together to create beautiful music, and will a healthy snack and beverage.

The program features Chatham Baroque’s Artistic Directors Andrew Fouts (baroque violin), Patricia Halverson (viola da gamba) and Scott Pauley (theorbo and baroque guitar).
