Get ready to sing, clap, dance, and spin along during this visit by award-winning musician and author Jim Gill! The Goshen Public Library is thrilled to host Jim Gill’s Sing-a-thon of Celebrated Songs at Pringle Park Pavilion from 2:30 – 3:30 pm on Monday, June 5. It will be the library’s first Funday Monday program of the summer. The concert is free and open to the public.
“It is exciting to bring Jim Gill, a nationally recognized musician, author, and child development specialist, to Goshen. This is an opportunity for children and their caregivers to build early literacy skills through play and song,” shares Tina Ervin, the Goshen Public Library’s Head of Children’s Services.
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, dances, and spins along to his silly and inspiring musical games. Each concert is more than a show to watch – it is an opportunity for family play!
This concert is part of Jim’s ongoing celebration of the release of his newest collection of recordings. The three CDs are called Jim Gill’s Most Celebrated Songs and are filled with his best and most active music play. Jim promises, in concert, to share a non-stop selection of sing-alongs, dance-alongs, fingerplays, and tongue twisters.
The concert will feature Jim’s ‘Silly Dance Contest,” his jazzy “One From the Left” finger play, and many more opportunities for children, parents, and grandparents to sing and play together!
The Friends of the Goshen Public Library and The Source generously supported this concert.
