Pelham, Ruth Musicraft: Singing and Instrument Building Workshop Multicultural- Other,
Music
**Reduced fees available for multiple programs in one day or block booking with multiple libraries for the same day.** Teaching children to work cooperatively, to help each other accomplish tasks, to share ideas and materials, and to appreciate each other’s creations are all part of this fun-filled character education through music workshop. Working in large and small groups, children build simple musical instruments made from recycled bottle caps, wood bits, cardboard boxes or paint sticks, and also sing songs about friendship, kindness and getting along. These lessons further children's understanding about recycling and reusing, and about caring for the Earth and our global family. A highlight of the workshop is when each child plays his or her instrument during the “Instrument Band Song” which is enthusiastically sung at the conclusion of the workshop. All materials are prepared and supplied by Music Mobile.

Singer-Songwriter Chip Richter’s Family Concert at The Library is more fun than a Kid (or Parent) should be allowed to have! It’s the kind of high-energy fun and audience participation naturally found in a live performance all in the wonderful learning environment of the public library. This is live music, no accompaniment tracks, so anything can happen! With his guitar, banjo, harmonica, stories and original tunes Chip connects with the kids and adults, creating moments to remember. Chip’s schedule for the summer of 2013 is beginning to fill up and we would love for your library be part of the fun. Chip's show connects with this year's Dig Into Reading theme as he shares original songs, some familiar favorites and stories that will inspire kids to dig into the wonderful adventure of reading. He'll be reminding kids and parents to consider what an amazing treasure the library is for our families and how uncovering just the right book at just the right time can be like finding a precious jewel or gem well worth digging for!

Beatles tribute band Mostly Moptop will perform a concert of Beatles music (and a few little surprises), but throughout we would do readings of prose and poetry not only by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, but also by key writers who influenced The Beatles such as Lewis Carroll, George Eliot, Shakespeare, and James Joyce (among several others). This promises to be a wonderful concert / library experience we would like to bring to the entire Public Library System.
