February Calendar of Events
Come to expERIEnce Children’s Museum during the month of February to check out the following events!
Flannery Brothers Concert
Friday February 1st
The Flannery Brothers have been performing children’s music since 2007 across the northeast at schools, libraries, festivals, museums and small theaters playing imaginative original music. They have been recognized by the American Library Association, the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and the Parents’ Choice Awards for their age-appropriate, educational and fun music. Their shows are high energy and interactive, engaging their young audience to sing, dance and clap along. “Exposure to music, and arts in general, is vitally important for early child development,” said Tami Netkowicz, executive director of the Children’s Museum. “The music of the Flannery Brothers is engaging with their zippy vocals and rhythms and instrumental variety of accordion, ukulele, horns, percussion, keyboards, guitar and more. But the music also is educational in other ways as children are introduced to literacy and math concepts, social skills, and even explore their own creativity and co-write songs with the artists. The special concert is being funded through contributions made to the Children’s Museum by businesses participating in Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit program.
