Welcome to Saturday Morning Tunes, an award-winning, family friendly concert series!

When we were growing up, kids’ music — let alone kids’ concerts — was pretty lame. Our mission: To present concerts you can enjoy with your kids — not just for your kids. We produce a mix of indoor and outdoor shows, with limited capacity to give everyone plenty of room to spread out and dance.

Flying Ivories Dueling Pianos show 1/28 at the Baltimore Museum of Industry

Flying Ivories

Saturday Morning Tunes presents the Flying Ivories Dueling Pianos show at the Baltimore Museum of Industry.

Have you ever been to a dueling pianos bar, where they take requests and play all your favorite songs from yesterday and today? This is the very same show, just not in a bar – it’s in the Baltimore Museum of Industry!

The Flying Ivories are a really talented piano duo who we first saw playing in Bethany Beach last summer. Kids, parents and grandparents all love this show. They get the whole crowd excited to be there.

You can make requests either via email or paper at the show.

Tickets to this show also include admission to the Baltimore Museum of Industry. It’s our first Saturday Morning Tunes at the BMI, and if you’ve never been there before, it’s a cool spot for kids and us parents too. There’s a free parking lot with plenty of secure parking spots right outside.

Doors open at 9:30 a.m. and the music starts at 10 a.m. and runs for about 60 minutes on Saturday Jan. 28, so you can catch some quality live music with your family, stroll through some cool Baltimore history and be home for (family) naptime. The Baltimore Museum of Industry is at 1415 Key Highway in Baltimore.

Made possible in part by Waldorf School of Baltimore.

Rock show feat. Jimmie’s Chicken Shack Feb. 11 at Maryland Hall in Annapolis

For more than 25 years, Jimmie’s Chicken Shack has been one of the Maryland’s favorite rock bands. The generation who grew up listening to their hits “Do Right” and “High” in the late 1990s now has kids of their own.

And on Feb. 11, Saturday Morning Tunes and Maryland Hall are excited to present Jimmie’s Chicken Shack at a time when parents can bring their kids to rock out!

The band will play family friendly versions of their hits, and finish in time for everyone to head home for lunch and (family) naps.

Doors open at 10 a.m. and the music starts at 10:30 a.m. Saturday Feb. 11 at Maryland Hall, 801 Chase St. in Annapolis.

Parking is free and plentiful.

Made possible in part by Peabody Preparatory of Johns Hopkins University and WTMD members.

All-new “Frozen 1 & 2 Stage Show” feat. Outcalls March 4 at the University of Maryland

If you have young children, you already know all the words to the soundtracks of “Frozen 1 & 2.”

And, on Saturday March 4, 89.7 WTMD’s Saturday Morning Tunes is thrilled to partner with The Clarice to present a brand new “Frozen” stage show featuring songs from both movies, performed by the classically trained opera singers Outcalls.

It’s a show the whole family can enjoy, from the soaring high notes of “Let it Go” and “Into the Unknown” (for the kids) to subtle jokes about just how ridiculous both these movies are (for us parents).

Tickets are available here.

Everyone is encouraged to dress in costume! Photos with the princesses will be available for purchase before and after the show.

Doors open at 10 a.m. and the show starts at 10:30 a.m. in the gorgeous Dekelboum Concert Hall at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, 8270 Alumni Dr. in College Park.

Made possible in part by The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and the Peabody Preparatory of Johns Hopkins University.

Saturday Morning Tunes gift certificates!

If you feel like your kids already have too many toys (which you inevitably step on and/or secretly throw out), don’t get them even more clutter for the holidays – get them an experience. Saturday Morning Tunes gift cards are good for any show, and we’ll be announcing 8-10 shows in and around Baltimore in the next few months.  Whether you’re buying something for your kids, grandkids or nieces and nephews, everyone will be sure to thank you for making memories without filling up the house.
