This performance is part of the Krannert Center Youth Series, school-day performances for public, private, and home schools, grades PreK-12.
Everyone becomes part of the act in this musical trip around the globe. Through colorful songs, stories, and games, the Guy Mendilow Ensemble takes students on an exhilarating, interactive adventure. Around the World in Song features joyous numbers filled with colorful characters from the band’s homelands of Israel, Argentina, and the United States. Along the way audiences are introduced to instruments like the munnharpa (jaw harp) and Peruvian cajon (box drum), and special techniques like overtone singing.
“It’s a responsibility—and a privilege—to give our very best to children. Drawing on our experience as music educators, teacher trainers, and parents, we strive to create the most engaging, interactive, and pedagogically sound concerts for young audiences.” —Guy Mendilow
