The voice on the CD comes alive at Music Together concert

From page A7 | August 20, 2014 |

A benefit family concert for young children and their families is planned for 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 24, in the Social Hall at Congregation Bet Haverim, 1715 Anderson Road, presented by Music Together of Davis and Gan Haverim Preschool.

The concert will feature singing and dancing to popular Music Together songs sung by Music Together teachers, along with international recording artist “Uncle Gerry” Dignan, who is featured on the award-winning music CDs known to thousands of families worldwide who have taken Music Together classes.

Dignan also recorded with Grammy-nominated cellist David Darling; has contributed to the work of Music for People, founded by Darling; was a member of the Chicago Symphony Chorus; and performed at the Concerthalle in Berlin as well as in New York at Carnegie Hall.

“I have been wanting to bring Uncle Gerry to Davis for a long time,” said Karen Crane, director of Music Together of Davis, in a news release. “These concerts provide such a wonderful opportunity for local families, not only to meet an actual artist whose voice has become so familiar on their CDs, but also to sing with him the songs that have become a part of their daily lives.

“Of course, families who don’t yet know our music and classes also are welcome to join us!”

Music Together is a global early childhood music and movement program for children from birth through age 7. Crane established the Davis program in January 2003 and it now offers classes six days a week at three locations — the Pamela Trokanski Dance Workshop, the Davis Arts Center and Gan Haverim Preschool.

Approximately 150 families are served during each of its 10-week sessions, held in the fall, winter and spring.

A suggested donation of $18 to $36 per family (for up to five people) is requested, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Tickets may be reserved at http://musictogetherofdavis.com. Proceeds raised will benefit both the Music Together of Davis Scholarship Fund and Gan Haverim Preschool.
