Our family-friendly shows are a collaboration with our local partner Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum. The “Concert from the Couch” events are currently online but will be transitioning to outdoor events this coming summer. They are perfect for the whole family! So mark your calendar, grab a snack, and gather with your family to enjoy diverse musical artists. Our 2021 summer line-up will start off with an outdoor, socially-distanced concert and singing workshop in June featuring the fabulous local artist Jazzy Olivo and continue with Puerto Rican Bomba group Bomba Marilé in July! Follow Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum on Facebook to access the free live stream on the 2nd Friday of each month at 6:30pm!

Artist Bio
Megan Makeever Ali is excited to be presenting an interactive family show for the Mundi Project! Based in Bozeman, Montana, Megan lives a multi-pronged life as a professional flutist, a Global Music Award-winning singer/songwriter with 3 original albums, a music professor at Montana State University, and a private piano and flute instructor for kids of all ages. As a flutist, she is known for her stylistic versatility,
always teeter-tottering between elite classical genres and something wildly different like beatbox flute, improvisatory playing, and extended techniques. As a vocalist and singer/songwriter, she is known for her soulful and jazzy vocals, and meaningful messages lyrically intertwined within a wide spectrum of genres. You never know where you’ll find Megan on a Friday night. She might be playing in the Bozeman
Symphony or Opera orchestra, singing her originals at a coffee shop, playing keys with local band Savvy, or having a blast on stage as a back-up singer for Pinky and the Floyd. You can also catch Megan on her Instagram @meganmakeever

“The Mundi Project has been keeping plenty busy this summer as they work to keep young music-learners busy and enthused by music. This summer has also featured them teaming up with Discovery Gateway to present their interactive virtual streaming series Concerts on the Couch. While many live streams in the music world are adult-focused, this is one opportunity to shake up what kind of entertainment your kid is used to, or maybe even bored with, at this point in the summer.” [Continue Reading]
