Hylton at Home Story Corner: “Khalida and the Most Beautiful Song”
May 15 @ 10:15 am - 11:00 amFree
The Hylton Performing Arts Center and the Prince William Public Library System have joined forces to present Hylton at Home Story Corner: “Khalida and the Most Beautiful Song,” a free virtual performing arts story time on Saturday, May 15 at 10:15 a.m. This digital event is part of the new Hylton at Home series, a curated platform of digital arts experiences that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your home.
When a song whispers in Khalida’s ear late one night, she is determined to catch it. But the next day, no matter how hard she tries, bad timing and a busy schedule get in the way of her creative pursuit. Khalida longs for time to sit at the piano and make her own music and refuses to give up on her quest. When she finally succeeds, we discover the power of a captivating melody. Readers will relate to Khalida’s overscheduling frustrations as well as her joy as inspiration becomes art. Lush watercolor art showcases how one girl’s determined pursuit of an idea rewards us all with the enduring magic of a beautiful song.
Each story time will be pre-recorded and premiere on both the Hylton Center and Prince William Public Library’s social media channels at 10:15 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month. The library will prepare reader advisories for each book that list similar books children and families may want to explore. This Hylton at Home Story Corner will be read by: Sheyna Burt.
