Fun new from Towson-based WTMD:
WTMD is excited to announce the launch of Saturday Morning Tunes, a new family-friendly concert series featuring rising stars of the children’s music scene, hosted at the WTMD performance studio in Towson.
The shows are once a month on Saturday mornings from January through March, broadcast live on the radio with a live studio audience of little ones! (That’s where you come in.)
Tickets are available for each individual show, or you can purchase a series pass for a family of four to all three shows – they make great holiday gifts too.
Doors open at 9 a.m. and the music runs from 9:30 a.m.-11 a.m. Each performance has an opening act as well as a headliner. Snacks (organic fig bars and fruit strips) as well as drinks (Horizon milk and Honest juice) are included for all kids. And the WTMD performance studio is a safe, clean environment with comfy furniture that’s ideal for climbing and sitting. Both our men’s and women’s bathrooms have stainless steel changing tables, and there will also be vintage cartoons playing on our flat screen TVs.
Also — kids under 2 are free! To purchase tickets or get more info, click here.
