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 and local wind quintet Aspen Winds in August! Follow Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum on Facebook to access the free live stream on the 2nd Friday of each month at 6:30pm!

I ❤️ Spaceship Earth 🌎 with Your Song My Song

Get ready for some funky, jazzy, spacey, kindie-rock fun! In their wildly interactive shows for children families, this dynamic duo sings you through a wider perspective of our sweet planet earth. Come for the space adventures with puppets, recycling kid revolutionaries, and danceable story songs! Jaime and Eric Hart weave tales of working together, caring for the trees, and our beloved oceans. Sing along laugh, dance, and imagine with Your Song My Song! 

Also! join us on Thursday, August 8th at 12pm for a FREE workshop and musical preview with the artists on Zoom:

 Heart to Paper: Songs that Matter with Puppets that Mean It 

Together we will write a song and create some paper art to create a musical video love letter to our home planet. Join Barb, Jaime, Eric, and Bernice and participate in writing a brand new song about one thing that every living being shares: our lovely planet Earth! Bring some paper and markers and all of your ideas! The workshop will be broadcast live on Zoom at Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum and right into your very own home.

“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]
