Welcome to the “Haunting Days of Halloween”.

What if supernatural creatures were real? What if they’ve been walking among us, hiding, pretending to be human? What if on the days leading to Halloween, they get to be just as they are?

Get ready for an spooktacular morning of music and family-fun with Lucy Kalantari & the Jazz Cats! The 2x GRAMMY® Award winner, front woman and songwriter Lucy Kalantari engages her audience with interactive, jazz-scat-along play, while singing foot-tapping songs highlighting the joys of life, community and resilience. Family members from 0 to 122 will find themselves lighter and smiling through and through!
