Get ready to sing, clap, dance and spin along with award-winning musician and author Jim Gill as he visits libraries on the Olympic Peninsula this month.
Gill’s “Sing-A-Thon of Celebrated Songs” is coming to the Forks Library at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 17, the Sequim Boys and Girls Club (400 W. Fir St.) at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18, and again that evening at 6:30 p.m. at the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St.
Gill’s distinctive music play creates the spirit of a family room and is an invitation to children, parents, and grandparents to sing and play together, program organizers say.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket.
Gill has released 10 award-winning CDs of music play for young children that are favorites in family rooms, classrooms and playrooms. His most popular book, “A Soup Opera,” is a sing-along opera inspired by concerts that he performs with symphony orchestras.
He is also a child development specialist, completing his graduate studies in child development at the Erikson Institute of Chicago with a special emphasis on the study of play.
This program is supported by the Friends of Sequim Library, Port Angeles Friends of the Library and Forks Friends of the Library.
