Shows for kids, too.

Byline: The Register-Guard

The Oregon Bach Festival will present the Eugene Youth Ballet's "Pinocchio" and the innovative storytellers Lelavision as its Saturday-morning children's concerts in the Hult Center's Silva Concert Hall.

"Pinocchio" will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday. Director and choreographer Sara Lombardi will begin the program with an introduction. The 11-member cast, ages 11-17, will dance to recorded music by Leo Delibes, Jacques Offenbach, Gioacchino Rossini, Ottorino Respighi and Leroy Anderson, bringing to life Gepetto (danced by Allie Boyden), Pinocchio (Sarah Adler), Jiminy Cricket (Alexandra McGlade), the sly fox J. Worthington Foulfellow (Saraphina Monaco) and Gideon the cat (Amy White).

Lelavision, a Seattle company founded by musician-sculptor Ela Lamblin and choreographer Leah Mann, will perform July 12 at 10 a.m. In a program called "Banging Bamboozles," sculptures will unfold into other-worldly musical instruments, as shamanic clowns travel a whimsical landscape.

Tickets are $5, through the Hult Center box office, 682-5000.

The festival's Kids to Concerts Community Outreach Program provides free tickets to social services agencies that serve youth and families. The Kids to Concerts program is underwritten by grants from David and Christa Katzin of Phoenix, Ariz., and Thomas Wildish of Eugene, with support from United Way of Lane County and Lane Transit District, which offers free transportation. For information, call 346-5666.


A children's show called "Banging Bamboozles" features whimsical musical instruments, such as ``orbacles,'' that make sound as performers inside them move about.
