FREE VIRTUAL SATURDAYS

Saturday, May 1 at 11:00am

As we celebrate the third year of the Family Saturday Series, we have adjusted to the current challenges facing us because of COVID-19 and sought new ways to reconnect with our audiences. To ensure the safety and well-being of our audiences, we’re excited to offer the Family Saturday Series as virtual Saturday experiences for FREE!


Performing on guitar, mandolin, banjo, harmonica and voice, Mr. Pettee brings U.S. and N.C. history to life with a lively interactive performance of music from the 1800s, including the Civil War era. Students will learn how these musical forms laid the foundation for jazz, rock and roll, and hip-hop. “Your presentation was one of the most instructional, entertaining and professional performances we sponsored all year.” (PTSA Cultural Enrichment Committee, East Chapel Hill High School)

Tocando la guitarra, la mandolina, el banjo y la armónica, además de interpretar con su voz, Pettee da vida a la historia de los Estados Unidos y Carolina del Norte con una presentación interactiva animada de la música del 1800, incluido el período de la Guerra Civil. Los estudiantes aprenden cómo estas formas musicales sentaron las bases del jazz, el rock and roll y el hip hop. “Su presentación fue una de las más instructivas, entretenidas y profesionales que patrocinamos en todo el año”.
