Symphony Space: Just Kidding Series

I recently wrote about one my favorite NYC theaters for kids, Symphony Space.  I highly suggest you take the kids next weekend to this great series called “Just Kidding”.   This series offers a cornucopia of weekly family-friendly performances this season.  Every Saturday from October through May, Symphony Space continues their tradition of offering New York families ground-breaking programming from around the country.  To play songs, play videos and get updates from the “Just Kidding” series, go here.

Please read below about some of their offerings for next weekend:

Smithsonian Folkways Artist Suni Paz
with special guest star Elizabeth Mitchell and family

Suni Paz
A Smithsonian Folkways artist originally from Argentina, Suni has been part of some of the most important folk music festivals of our time. Suni’s unique songs inspire positive ideas, the strength of the human spirit, and a caring world view. Suni Paz is an upbeat, energetic performer, full of love and life. Her songs carry importance to anyone looking for content, culture, and pure joy. She uses folk music, children’s music and popular rhythms from Latin America, as well as other parts of the globe, bringing a natural earth-bound warmth to every performance. Suni believes in the power of music to connect people through their shared histories: “There is a connection among human beings, at least I believe that… and our connection comes from the roots. It’s like we have the same water in our roots. Eventually we will recognize each other in the songs.”

Big Nate at Symphony Space
Thalia Kids’ Book Club Event:
Lincoln Peirce’s Big Nate series

Recommended for kids ages 8 to 12. Lincoln Peirce, the cartoonist and bestselling author of the best-selling Big Nate books, give a behind-the-scenes look at his funny and clever middle-grade series. He’ll also talk with kids about his comic strip (published in over 250 newspapers), which follows a spunky self-described genius on an unforgettable trail through the sixth grade in a comic book-style diary. Participants will enjoy a reader-response activity and chat with Lincoln Peirce about their own work.
Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, says, “Big Nate is funny, big time!”  Watch Lincoln Peirce talk with Jeff Kinney here: http://www.bignatebooks.com/content/videos
