Jazzy Strings is a lively mixture of puppetry and Big Band, Dixieland and Ragtime music, presented by Mountain Marionettes from Cedar Mountain, North Carolina. You’ll see Katrina perform on her flying trapeze to George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue”; a hula dancer gyrating to Spike Jones’s “Hawaiian War Chant”, and Mr. Bones falling apart when he hears Scott Joplin’s fabulous Ragtime. Other featured tunes include "The Charleston," "Shine On Harvest Moon," and "The Best Things in Life Are Free." This family program is free, courtesy of the Friends of New Hanover County Public Library. It’s offered as part of the Big Read: Greater Wilmington Reads the Great Gatsby.
