Saturday Morning Tunes

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, at times when you don’t have to pay for a sitter.

We produce a mix of indoor and outdoor shows. The secret is, these shows aren’t actually for our kids – they’re for us parents (shhh).

Over the years, so many of us have seen Phish at Merriweather Post Pavilion.

Saturday Morning Tunes Phish for Kids

Phish for Kids feat. Phoam comes to Colorburst Park in Columbia Oct. 14.

Now, WTMD & WYPR’s Saturday Morning Tunes is bringing our Phish for Kids show featuring Phoam to the nearby Merriweather District’s Color Burst Park, on Saturday Oct. 14. Presented by Stages Music Arts!

We’re thrilled to welcome Phoam, Maryland’s best Phish tribute band, playing all our favorite Phish tunes.

There’s plenty of parking, as well as food options nearby.

Bring a blanket and camp chairs because Colorburst Park has room to spread out and dance. We can’t wait to bring Saturday Morning Tunes to Columbia!

Doors open at 11 a.m. and the show runs 11:30-1 p.m. Saturday Oct. 14 at Color Burst Park, 6000 Merriweather Dr. in Columbia. It’s a show the whole family (including grandparents!) can enjoy.
