This year’s Bellingham Children’s Film Festival spotlights quirky animation. On May 14-15, catch a medley of animated shorts selected from the Children’s Film Festival Seattle. Also happening on Saturday, May 14 is the “Universal Language of Music” concert put on by the Whatcom Symphony Orchestra, where kids admission is free. The highlight will be an original arrangement of Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain” as featured in the classic Disney film Fantasia. Also featured in the concert will be Gershwin’s “Cuban Overture,” a reading of the classic Chinese folk tale “White Bones” with orchestral accompaniment, and a performance by Wendy Setter’s The Dance Studio set to music by the orchestra (“Morning” from Ibsen’s opera Peer Gynt, “Seguidille” from Carmen, and “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker). Check the link above for the full schedule of both events and admission prices.
