Throughout December, Please Touch Museum will be ringing in the holiday season with the “Make a Joyful Noise” performance series! Each weekend in December we’ll be welcoming all kinds of different groups to perform in Hamilton Hall, playing holiday songs that represent a diversity of styles and cultural traditions. There are as many ways to celebrate the holidays as there are families, and music is a universal language that can speak to all. The fun continues this weekend with two exciting performances:
Philadelphia Handbell Ensemble
Have you ever seen a handbell ensemble? Some are big and some are small – and together they make beautiful music! This Saturday, December 18th is your chance to catch the musical magic of this 18 member ensemble at Please Touch Museum. This is the last weekend of the Make a Joyful Noise performance series, so come the Philadelphia Handbell Ensemble ring in the holiday fun at 12 and 2 in Hamilton Hall!
St. Joe’s Prep Jazz Band
This Sunday, December 19th, all the cool cats will be swinging at Please Touch Museum with 2 performances of the St. Joe’s Prep Jazz Band. It’s time to see those saxophones, trumpets, trombones up close and personal - and don’t forget the rhythm section! The band will play the holiday classics for you to dance and sing along with at 12 and 2 in Hamilton Hall. It’s a party not to be missed!

We're all about learning through play.
