Director Selects | May 8

Director Selects | May 8Family Edition

I asked The Soraya's Programming Manager Justin Souza to put together this week's Selects. You will find his recommendations below — music and other activities from four of The Soraya's past artists. If you're not keeping young ones busy at home, please share with those who are! 

This week is for the little ones, tweens, teens, and young at heart! Kids (and their grownups) will enjoy music and activities that ignite wonder and creativity! From sing-alongs and homemade crafts to gravity-defying home school lessons, there's fun for everyone to enjoy together! Whether you just need a break for yourself, or you're racking your brain for something different to do together with your people indoors, I hope these recommendations help lighten the load just a little.

—Justin Souza, Programming Manager
