David Weinstone, founder of Music for Aardvarks, explains, “our shows are rockin’, and we try to have as much audience participation as possible. We’ve even had kids come up on stage with us to sing or dance.”
Tickets are $18 per adult; $13 per child; $15 adult Jewish Museum family level member; and $11 child Jewish Museum family level member. Adults are asked to accompany their children. For further information, the public may call 212.423.3337. Program tickets can be purchased online at TheJewishMuseum.org.
Music for Aardvarks is the brainchild of the classically trained ex-punk rocker David Weinstone. His songs, originally written for the Music for Aardvarks classes he founded,reflect and celebrate the lives of children growing up in urban environments, while addressing themes universal to children everywhere. Wrote Time Out New York Kids, “it’s no exaggeration to say that Weinstone has changed the musical geography of New York.” Their latest album, All I Want!, was released in March 2011.
