The Stark Museum of Art, 712 Green Avenue in Orange, invites families to Musical Family Day from 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 25. Attendance is free and all ages are welcome.

Located in Port Neches, Tonalta School of Music is regarded as the area’s premier music school.
Amelia Wiggins, educator, Public Programs, welcomes the public, saying, “We invite families to come to Musical Family Day to dance, listen to music, create, and look at art together.”
