High River Gift of Music presents Rocky Mountain Fairy Tales, a free children’s concert to delight and captivate the imagination.
Featuring Samantha Whelan Kotkas and Mark Limacher, the interactive concert is set for Saturday, Feb. 10 at 2 p.m. at High River United Church.
The performers take the audience on an imaginary journey to the meadows high above Canmore, where music and fantasy meet. Legend has it that the mountain fairies gather there to dance in the light of the full moon.
Musical storyteller Whelan Kotkas and pianist Limacher create an interactive experience that will delight children of all ages, interweaving fairy tales with melody to spark both imagination and a love of music.
Whelan Kotkas is an award-winning storyteller, professional trumpet player, teaching artist and children’s book producer. She has won praise for her unique interactive experiences for young audiences.
Composer-pianist Limacher is a graduate of New School University in New York City. His compositions focus on small gestures and contemplative textures, his work manifesting most frequently in the guise of solo instruments and chamber ensembles.
