Friday, Oct. 27, 10 a.m.—RANDOLPH—Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Jon Gailmor presents a special daytime concert for area schoolchildren at the Chandler Center for the Arts on Friday, Oct. 27 at 10 a.m. Tickets are offered at a low cost to all thanks to their being subsidized by grants, sponsors, and generous local donors.
The participatory concert is the second event in Chandler’s Daytime Performance Series for the 2017-18 season. Performances in the series are presented especially for schools, teachers, students, homeschoolers, and their families. Students from area schools are attending this Jon Gailmor concert as a group, while home-schoolers and individual members of the general public are also welcome to attend the Friday morning event. The concert is particularly suited for students in grades K-6.
Jon Gailmor has been honored as an “extraordinary Vermonter” by the governor of Vermont. He is also a recipient of the Mayor’s Peace Prize in Burlington, a Silver Citation by the Vermont Arts Council, and the Ellen McCulloch-Lovell Award for Arts in Education. His performance at Chandler is entitled “Be Who You Are: A Concert for Kids.” Gailmor is particularly renowned for his highly participatory concerts for young children, which have held audiences rapt throughout New England and the country for decades. Raucous laughter and spirited sing-alongs are at the heart of any Gailmor concert, as are humorous and thought-provoking songs that encourage self-expression and celebrate our shared humanity.
For group or general admission tickets and more information about this special children’s concert, call 802-728-6464 or visit chandler-arts.org. Chandler Center for the Arts is located at 71-73 Main St., Randolph.
