Superheroes and heroes will take over the auditorium at MassBay Community College on March 18th as the Wellesley Symphony presents its annual Family Concert, hosted by Sprague School music teacher Brian Hagar-McKee.
Children and their families will thrill to music from Batman, Spiderman, Superman, Star Wars, ET, Harry Potter, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and many others. Everyone is invited to come dressed as his or her favorite superhero and Maestro Max Hobart will lead the orchestra with his powerful light saber.

If you aren’t familiar with the 19-year-old YouTube sensation and lo-fi bedroom singer, then check in with a local teen to get the scoop. She hit it big on YouTube last year with a low-key video for her song “Pretty Girl” (approaching 10 million views) and now the Syracuse University is a rising music star.
