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.

Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
This is a wonderful storytelling performance for African-American History Month as well as all year round! Multiple Parents’ Choice Award winning storyteller Robbi K's spirit is clearly contagious, and the entire audience is soon singing and clapping along with the telling of how the turtle got its shell. Movement, singing and chanting set the scene for Robbi to unfold this amusing traditional tale of a little turtle who outwits the fierce leopard and is rewarded with a shell. Robbi moves about constantly, appealing to the audience as she acts out the many characters. This program can also include an African percussionist, budget permitting.

McIntosh, Story Laurie Around the World in An Afternoon Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Starting with a folk tale from the small island nation of Haiti, I will take students on an imaginary journey across the Atlantic, where they will meet characters commonly found in European and African folklore. We will continue our journey around the globe, with a stop in Asia, then the South Seas and finally back home to the United States. As we travel, we will talk about why people tell stories, and explore why similar stories appear in a different cultures around the world. During the 30-60 minute concert (program length and repertoire adjustable to suit your scheduling and curricular needs), listeners will be active participants in the program, both as an audience who delights in the magic of stories and songs from such a wide variety of cultures, and as “explorers” who help me answer questions about the tradition of storytelling and the stories themselves. At turns hilarious and serious, Story Laurie magically glides from one character to the next, employing her marvelous vocal skills, gestures and facial expressions. Perfect for libraries, schools and community events -- Laurie has a knack for enchanting both young and old equally!
