Preschoolers celebrate Ukrainian New Year with a musical charity event
Don’t put your party dress away yet!
Preschoolers and their parents/caregivers are invited to join TreeFrog Music to celebrate the new year (Ukrainian New Year, that is) 10 to 11:15 a.m. on Fri., Jan. 13, at a Music Together Jam Party. We’ll be dancing and singing, moving and shaking, banging on drums and then celebrating with a little treat.
Current and former students, friends, and any folks interested in finding out more about Music Together– an internationally recognized early childhood music and movement program – are all welcome. Admission is by donation of cash, non-perishable food and clean, gently used toys and household items for the Comox Valley Transition Society.
The Transition Society supports women and children who have to make a new start due to domestic violence. They offer counselling as well as practical help, crisis assistance service and a safe house. Starting over from a safe base is very relevant to the fresh start of a new year, and TreeFrog Music is happy to support the Transition Society’s efforts to give a helping hand to families in need.
TreeFrog Music is a local business that offers music lessons and Music Together classes, for kids 0 to 5-years-old, and the grown-ups who love them.
These classes are fun and engaging explorations of tone and rhythm, singing, movement and sound. They are 45 minutes of pure fun with your child, and yet they build the foundations of future musical ability, as well as developing language and gross motor skills.
This season, TreeFrog is adding the Abbey in Cumberland as a new site for Music Together classes.
“The Abbey is an amazing space with great acoustics and lots of room to play,” Treefrog director Kazimea Sokil says.
A former pioneer era church, the Abbey is now privately owned and used for workshops and classes. It can be found at 2689 Penrith Ave. in Cumberland.
Music Together classes will be held at the Abbey Fridays at 10 a.m., starting Jan. 27. Classes will also be held in Courtenay on Tuesdays at 10 a.m. at the Saltwater School, 2311 Rosewall Cres., starting Jan. 24.
For information on registration, check the website.
There is a discount for early registration, and the classes are filling up.
