Young Audiences Deserve Great Art

Jazzy Ash

February 2019

Hundreds of eager little ones with self-made shakers in hand and maybe a little more sugar-fueled than usual—that’s how we start the day with our free, family fun days at Krannert Center. Throughout its five decades of impact, the Center has continued to serve our youngest patrons through enriching and engaging performances, because we know that high-quality arts experiences make a big impression on young minds. Sharing these experiences with parents, peers, educators, and other supporters further deepens the enjoyment of these activities and encourages creativity, self-expression, community building, and lifelong arts participation.

On Saturday, February 16, Jazzy Ash and the Leaping Lizards, a fabulously free-wheeling, New Orleans-fueled quintet will enliven the lobby stage in a free-for-all-ages performance. Come join us, and bring the special young audience members in your life along!
