|The Drum Safari Show concert on July 26 is next Kid Friendly Musical Performance at museum|
A high-energy, interactive percussion performance is in store when the Johnson County Museum presents the next in a series of Kid Friendly Musical Performance on July 26. These programs all take place at the museum’s new home in the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center in the former King Louie Building, 8788 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park.
The next concert is The Drum Safari Show on Wednesday, July 26. During this performance, children are invited to join a musical “safari” where they meet different African animals whose names are set to rhythm. After meeting the animals, each child is given a percussion instrument… and the jungle jam begins! As the rhythms of the animals lock together, an exciting sense of community begins to develop. This program includes interactive songs, dancing, and, of course, drumming! The cost for this 45-minute program is $5 per person, or $4 for museum members.
Kid Friendly Musical Performances are designed for ages two through ten with an adult, and will all take place beginning at 10 a.m. To find these programs in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under preschool and then under fine & performing arts. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “music.”
