  • Join us for our new free family musical programs held in the Flynn’s lobby on the following Saturday mornings at 10 am. Each of these events is characterized by a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere with families encouraged to choose their own adventure in terms of how long they engage with any activity, whether they use our always available headphones for persons with sensitivities to sound, whether they dance with their eyes or their whole selves, every family belongs at the Flynn Free Family Saturdays. Please join us at:

    A Musical Zoo: Listen! on March 2nd at 10am: A Collaboration with the Lake Champlain Chamber Music Society: Is that a bird or a flute? Is that a swan or a cello? Is that a fish or a piano? Come hear and find out on an adventure through our musical zoo! Elizabeth Hickerson narrator, with musicians: Karen Kevra on flute, Emily Taubl on cello, and Mary Jane Austin on piano.

    A Family Rave Dance Party on May 11 at 10am: Winooski’s own DJ Craig Mitchell will transform the lobby into a lively, beats-filled, disco space for a Family Rave dance party.

    Birdcode On June 1 at 10am: We join with Burlington Discover Jazz Festival to welcome locally beloved jazz quartet Birdcode to make the lobby swing with the joy of experiencing live jazz together with families, in community.

Says Executive Director Anna Marie Gewirtz, “At the Flynn we want to foster a lifelong association with the performing arts, and it is a priority for me that we make it possible to begin that path at a young age. It’s also extremely important to make high quality performing arts experiences accessible to children and families of all backgrounds -- including parents, caregivers, mentors, and grandparents – and that’s why we’ve decided to make this program free of charge.”
