Sing-A-Thon of Celebrated Songs, a Family concert with Jim Gill

Jim Gill is a musician and author known for celebrating active play. In concert, Jim strums energizing rhythms on his banjo while everyone sings, claps, and dances along to his silly and inspiring musical games.  Each concert is more than a show to watch – it is an opportunity for play!  Jim promises, in concert, to share a non-stop selection of sing-alongs, dance-alongs, finger plays and tongue twisters.

The concert will end with a read-along and sing-along of one of Jim’s musical books, May There Always Be Sunshine. The concert sing-along will introduce the Children’s Museum’s premiere of our community VIDEO book filled with pages created by children throughout Southern Minnesota!

About Jim Gill:

Jim Gill is a musician, an author and, perhaps most importantly, a child development specialist.  His recordings and his picture books with musical themes have received honors and awards from, among other organizations, the American Library Association. Jim completed his graduate studies in child development at the Erikson Institute of Chicago with a special emphasis on the study of play. For this reason, each of Jim’s recordings and books is created as an opportunity for playful interactions between a child and a caring adult.

Anyone who has experienced one of Jim’s concerts knows that rather than performing for children and caregivers…..Jim leads them to sing and play together.
