Enjoy a unique combination of great classical music, mystifying magic and tons of fun when Presto!, a talented trio of professional musicians, presents “The Case of the Vanishing Viola”. Polished performances of classical music combined with fantastic feats of magic and an engaging story make the learning fun as children are introduced to the instruments and music of the string family. Young audiences are mesmerized as violinist Karen Lowry-Tucker and violist Elizabeth Pulju-Owen, both members of the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra, along with cellist/magician Drew Owen weave their tale of music and magic, friendship and cooperation. Expect a wide range of musical styles, plenty of participation from the audience, and phenomenal magic!
