for Children & Families
Programming for children and families is offered in schools, libraries, and other community venues.
Children are directly involved in the presentation of folk song performances with the mission of keeping our nation's folk song heritage alive for our youngest generations.
The programming of social studies content for school performances utilizes the official academic standards from the Department of Education as a direct guideline. These concert programs help students master their benchmarks because they bring lesson content to life through the specific music of the historical events being taught in class. Additionally, visual aides and supplemental materials help to reinforce key concepts.
One of the great things about the music of our history is that it not only helps kids succeed as students, but also aids in shaping who they are as American citizens. Programming that focuses on social emotional learning features songs about Americans throughout history that overcame adversity and hardship, as well as Americans that had the courage to live by a high code of ethics and morals, even when it was hard to do so.
