Weekend Picks

Looking for something fun to do with the family this weekend?
Saturday: Take in a performance by musician Maria Sangiolo at the Amazing Things Arts Center in Framingham at 11 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday, Feb. 3)

Maria has been enchanting audiences with her warm stage presence and pure voice for more than 15 years. Her concerts for young children include "great participation, creative energy and a voice we wish we all had," says Carolyn Otto, teacher. Her song choices invite participation as she engages her young audiences with voice, sound, and movement - children chime in or sing along, play simple percussion instruments, and move in all kinds of ways.
The center is located at 55 Nicholas Road in Framingham.

Sunday: Enjoy the ballet with your child. Ballet Arts Worcester is presenting Peter and the Wolf at 3 p.m. at Worcester Vocational High.

Sergei Prokofiev created a symphonic fairy tale to introduce young people to the musical instruments of the orchestra. Through its staging of this charming Russian folk tale, the Ballet Arts Worcester company brings life to the exuberant Peter and the animal friends who help him triumph over the danger in his own backyard.
Tickets are $10 for children and $15 for adults and are available by calling 508-754-3231.
The high school is located at 1 Skyline Drive in Worcester.
