Kids love interactive performances and when it comes to music even the quietest kid will pick up an instrument and participate. The hugely popular Lincoln Center program, WeBop! is coming to the Jewish Museum this month for a special concert: WeBop! Family Jazz Party: Painted Beats.
Children ages 3-8 and their families can participate in the concert which is actually an interactive party and explore the connections between jazz and the art works of abstract expressionists Lee Krasner and Norman Lewis (at 12:15 there’s a gallery tour of Krasner and Lewis). Families will learn how jazz and art share many similar qualities and compose and conduct their own sound collages. WeBop! provides creative experiences for parents and children featuring jazz as a vehicle for self-expression, communication, and play through singing, movement, playing instruments, and storytelling.
