A family entertainment series kicked off at Teatro Zuccone on Sunday with a very interactive storytelling session and some horn-driven ska.

Dr. Chang'aa Mweti is a professional storyteller from Kenya. He teaches at the University of Minnesota Duluth, and he was the first performer in the Zeitgeist Family Concert Series.

Following Mweti was Fuzzy Ellis, a local horn-driven ska band.

For the Sunday afternoon sessions, Teatro Zuccone will feature two different types of music or performance art designed to be fun for all ages. The shorter lengths of the shows are designed to keep kids engaged and allow families to attend.

Proceeds are going to support ISD #709. The next show is April 13 with members of the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra and the Church of Restoration Praise Team.
