The Music of Junk! {Giveaway}

Now here is a unique fun-filled family-friendly event which I know my kids would love: The Music of Junk! You can see everyday objects turned into musical instruments in an eco-concious production; it includes objects like a bed frame turned into a harp and a timpani made from a 1999 Honda Accord.  My kids could get so many ideas from this (and yes, I had to google "timpani" to ensure I knew what it was--a kettle drum!)

Paul Snider is the production's creator and composer who includes catchy songs and leads 12 local musicians who have their own junkyard masterpieces.  This production was recently named one of the 10 hottest art shows in November by Vancity Buzz and I think it would be a fantastic date night idea!

Junk becomes a musical treasure in this concert experience, The Music of Junk! and takes place from November 18-22 at the Waterfront Theatre on Granville Island.  Make a day of it exploring Granville Island, going out to eat, and then enjoy the show!  Tickets are very affordable for kids and you can find the price list here.

If you would like the chance to win a pair of tickets to the November 19th show, please enter in the Rafflecopter below! Good luck :)
