Free Fun Friday | Day 24


For today’s edition of Free Fun Friday, I present to you the Kimmel Center. First off, it’s an incredible facility – the architecture itself inspires creativity.  In a city full of tall, tall, tall, crazy high tall buildings, the arched ceiling made of window tiles stands out to the budding artist.


If you keep your ears out, you can find some free concerts to attend. This concert happened to have a special little performer involved.

Kimmel Center

Chloe was invited to play with 90 other little violinists who were joining up with members of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. We couldn’t say no to such an exciting opportunity. She was thrilled and super excited. (Although, she wants me to make it clear, she was also a teeeeeeeensy bit nervous at the beginning.)


She’s always super intense about her tuning. And usually everyone else’s.


These two are her biggest cheerleaders. Neither one has missed a concert. 🙂


Ninety violinists. Plus some professionals from the Philadelphia Symphony. It was quite the beautiful sound.


Because Chloe is so tiny, she’s always on the front row. I don’t mind. 😉

Enjoy a few videos from the concert!

 Chloe learned this song in 2 days to be able to perform it!

At the end of this one, I finally stopped shaking the phone and zoomed in so you can find the star of our show. 

And – in case you’re interested in more free concerts at the Kimmel Center, check out one of these dates. They are fantastic for young children as they are never more than an hour; they are free, and there are already lots of (noisy, dancing) children in the audience. Yours will blend right in. Promise. 🙂

About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!

Tell me what you think!
