FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Harbourfront Centre welcomes
Music with Bite: Rhythm & Stomp

FREE entertaining and educational concert for children ages five to 12


TORONTO, ON (March 21, 2011) - Harbourfront Centre is pleased to announce the exciting performance of Rhythm & Stomp as part of the 2010-2011 season of Music with Bite. This fun, interactive and FREE concert is performed in English and designed especially for children ages five to 12.

Rhythm & Stomp takes place in the Brigantine Room on Sunday, April. 10, 2011 at 1 p.m.
Performed by Thierry Arsenault and Bruno Roy, this fast-paced, humour-filled concert invites kids into the fantastic world of rhythm, where the human body and everyday objects suddenly become musical instruments! The magic of rhythm is created by the human heart, rain, a ticking clock or the dancing of a flame. Exotic, colourful percussion instruments like the djembe, derbouka, bells and tambourines are used to accompany a magical story!

Harbourfront Centre’s Music with Bite is a free concert series presented in partnership with Jeunesses Musicales Ontario where children are encouraged to grab a comfy cushion and sit in front of the stage for an enjoyable, interactive music performance tailored towards young audience members. This diverse concert allows children to sample music while bringing an element of interactivity, education and entertainment to their programmes. After the performance, children are invited to enjoy a yummy complimentary snack of cookies and a Natrel® milk beverage!

For complete event details and full event schedule, the public can visit harbourfrontcentre.com or call the Information Hotline at 416-973-4000. Harbourfront Centre is located at 235 Queens Quay West, in the heart of downtown Toronto’s waterfront.
