School Performance: The Laurie Berkner Band: The Greatest Hits (KCYS)

This performance is part of the Krannert Center Youth Series, school-day performances for public, private, and home schools, grades PreK-12. View the general public event page.

"The undisputed queen of kindie rock" didn't set out to be a children's musician, but a knack for inventive, playful, well-crafted songs and a passion for youth education landed her in the hearts of kids and parents alike (USA Today). Features on Nick Jr.'s Move to the Music series, Jack's Big Music Show, and Sprout's Sunny Side Up quickly had the preschool set singing out hits like Victor Vito, Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz), Under a Shady Tree, and Rocketship Run, as honors from Parents' Choice and National Parenting Publications Awards rolled in and the Billboard charts stayed lit up.

Through an animated series, a popular SiriusXM segment, book publications, two Off-Broadway children's shows, and an innovative teacher-training program, Laurie continues her work at the forefront of creating "songs that matter for children." Along with band members Susie Lampert (keyboards), Brady Rymer (bass), and Bob Golden (drums/percussion), Berkner joyfully shares her smart, distinctive style on stages from the Carnegie Hall to the White House—and now, at Krannert Center.

Recommended for grades PreK-2
Performance length: 60 minutes
