The Basie Center’s Monmouth Conservatory of Music offers four fun-filled nights – for kids and parents alike
(RED BANK – JULY 30) – The Count Basie Center’s Monmouth Conservatory of Music is pleased to announce four nights of freedom for parents – nights cleverly disguised as opportunities for their budding instrumentalists to experience an evening of music appreciation.
“Kid’s Night Out at the Conservatory” is a Friday night drop-off series for students grades K-8 who study a musical instrument. The sessions, running from 6pm – 9pm on August 2, 9, 16 and 30, take place at the Monmouth Conservatory of Music, located at 65 Chestnut Street, Red Bank. “Kid’s Night Out at the Conservatory” is hosted by Monmouth Conservatory violin teacher Bettina Forbes.
For just $20, students of all experience levels can enjoy an evening of music and games, including live performances, trivia challenges, famous music films – and free pizza and cookies!
As their children spend time immersed in music and fun, parents are encouraged to take advantage of Red Bank’s red-hot restaurant and shopping scene.
Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Details and registration links are below:
