Capitol Center for the Arts Offers Summer Programming for Kids
The Capitol Center for the Arts ("CCA") will be alive this summer with singing, dancing, and theatre as it presents performance series by Mr. Aaron, RB Productions and Impact Children's Theatre. The CCA understands the importance of teaching children how to understand and appreciate the performing arts from a young age. Each show encourages children to take pleasure in and emotionally connect to the songs and stories of others. By attending, our littlest patrons can learn both how to express themselves creatively and how to value the creativity of others.
For this special concert series, Mr. Aaron (pictured above) gets creative with a variety of his favorite instruments. Each show will feature a new instrument, along with the Mr. Aaron original songs you know and love.
With years of experience performing and teaching, Mr. Aaron brings unparalleled energy, enthusiasm and creativity to his concerts, albums, and videos. After nearly 10 years as a professional musician in New York City, Jones and his family moved to Concord, NH, to have a baby and open a recording studio. At Rattlebox Studio, he records local musicians, gives private lessons, and teaches weekly music and art classes at his classroom space for kids, Rattlebox Kids. A longtime member of kindie band Karen K and the Jitterbugs, Mr. Aaron has delighted and inspired kids and families all along the east coast. When he's not performing for kids, he tours with '90s alt-rockers Luscious Jackson and has been seen on The Late Show with David Letterman and VH1.
Performance dates/times are June 29, July 13, and August 3 at 11AM.

About the Capitol Center for the Arts The award-winning Capitol Center for the Arts (ccanh.com) inspires, educates, and entertains audiences by providing a quality venue for the performing arts as well as an eclectic variety of professional-level, artistically-significant presentations. The CCA is devoted to family and programming throughout the year and is proud to present the Lincoln Financial School Series each year.
The Capitol Center is conveniently located off Rt. 93 in downtown Concord, New Hampshire and is close to several quality restaurants, shopping boutiques, and other area attractions. The facility first opened in 1927 as the Capitol Theatre, a prime stop on the Vaudeville circuit; it later became Concord's premier movie house and concert hall. After closing in 1989, it underwent a multi-million dollar renovation / modernization and reopened in 1995 as the Capitol Center for the Arts. Today, the Capitol Center is home to the 1304-seat Chubb Theatre, the Spotlight Café, the Governor's Hall ballroom, and the Kimball House, a stately Victorian mansion.
