Sing a Story, Read a Song!

Music is Everywhere! Free Concert with Nan Hoffman

Join us in the Round Lake Auditorium (the big building across from Clark House) for a FREE performance by Nan Hoffman.

Music, especially folk music with its emphasis on lyrics and stories, can help enhance reading, writing and listening skills, and language development. Because American Folk Music has been influenced by people and traditions from around the world, Nan will share songs and instruments from other countries, songs that celebrate the music of nature and even songs that find their music in the rhythmic rubbish of our recycling bins!
