Tiny Islands


There’s no better way to introduce kids to an exciting variety of musical instruments than through the upbeat, can’t-sit-still jazz of the 1920s and ‘30s. In their new show, masterful musicians Tim and Nathan Sars engage kids of all ages with irresistible tunes by jazz greats like Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway and Fats Waller.   Grades K-7.


Hailing from a musical family, veteran leader of Vancouver’s inimitable Carnival Band, Tim Sars has over a decade of experience entertaining and engaging kids and their families with fun, spirited, and participatory music. When Tim teams up with brother Nathan and two more are added rounding out a quartet, they become the group called Tiny Islands.
