Saturday Morning Tunes Mini Masquerade Ball at the Lyric

Scroll Down For Tickets

Presented by Live Baltimore

Saturday, May 5th, 10 a.m.-noon

Because there just aren’t enough reasons to dress our kids up and go dancing, WTMD’s Saturday Morning Tunes is excited to announce the inaugural Mini Masquerade Ball at the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric.

Held in the Lyric’s open, multi-level lobby and concourse (not in the big room with the fixed seating), the Mini Masquerade Ball is everything we love about parties, just for us parents and our little ones!

It starts at 10 a.m. and ends at noon, so we can all be home in time for naps. And we’re packing lots of fun into those two hours.

**This is a fundraiser, to help support children’s programming on WTMD.**

We’ll have one of the best party bands in town, the Bachelor Boys Band, playing all of our favorite kid-appropriate dance songs. Bmore HoopLove will present a hula-hooping stilt walker, a juggling uni-cyclist and interactive hula-hoopers. Plus: arts and crafts, a masquerade-themed photo booth from Baltimore Photo Social (with lots of props) and more!

Dresses, button-down shirts and ties are strongly encouraged. Bring your own masks, or make one here at our arts and crafts tables. The more colorful, the better!

If your little one doesn’t like wearing masks, our expert face painter could apply one that lasts a bit longer.

We’ll have crust-less Sun Butter and marshmallow sandwiches and other fancy finger foods – and drinks, including a sparkling cider toast at 11 a.m. (They’re all included in the ticket price.)

Oh, and for the adults? Coffee. Lots of coffee — and snacks (included in the ticket price). Also: some slightly stronger beverages as well (these, however, are priced separately).

We all know how cute our kids can be when they’re dressed up and dancing. Let’s party, and help support more children’s programming on WTMD!

Be sure to get your tickets in advance, and we’ll see you Saturday May 5 at the Lyric!

Saturday Morning Tunes Mini Masquerade Ball is presented by Live Baltimore. Other sponsors include Garrison Forest School, (cool) progeny, Maryland Excels, Race Pace Bicycles, Eddie’s of Roland Park, ClimbZone White Marsh, Baltimore Magazine and Ukazoo Books.

April 7 with Falu’s Bazaar

A native of Bombay, India, Falu is a world music star. She has collaborated with a who’s who of the music industry, including Yo-Yo Ma, Wyclef Jean and Ricky Martin. Falu has performed at the White House for then-President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, and was appointed Carnegie Hall’s ambassador of Indian Music. After having her own son, Falu set out to create “Falu’s Bazaar,” a musical journey through South Asian culture and beyond.

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.

We have snacks (organic fig bars and fruit strips) as well as drinks (Horizon milk and Honest juice) which are included in the ticket price for all kids. Race Pace Bicycles sets up bicycles with training wheels for children to ride around the enclosed plaza outside our studio. And we have coffee from Garrison Forest School and arts and crafts from The Walters Art Museum.

Beatles Family Festival at WTMD

Our first ever Beatles show was such a hit in January, we’re celebrating the music of the best kids rock band ever (and best overall rock band ever) at this indoor/outdoor mini-festival at WTMD! Yellow Dubmarine, an incredible reggae and ska Beatles tribute band, is headlining the indoor stage. And we’ll have acoustic Beatles songs on the outdoor stage. That’s not to mention our Beatles-themed photobooth from Baltimore Photo Social, coffee from Garrison Forest School, bicycle rides from Race Pace Bicycles and our usual assortment of delicious organic snacks from Eddie’s of Roland Park. Doors open at 9 a.m. and the festival goes until 11:30 a.m. inside and outside the WTMD studios.
