Event Description

Golden Bird acoustic duo

Music-for-All-Ages acoustic duo “Golden Bird” is coming to the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art on Saturday, November 11, 2017, at 11:00 AM! The Northampton Community Music Center, 93.9 The River, and The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art partner to present this concert which is part of the Family Concert Series, featuring a different children’s music artist or band at each event. Drawing inspiration from rock-and-roll and pop to jazz and musical theater, “Golden Bird” has something for every audience. General admission is $5 at the door, $4 for EBT cardholders, and free for infants 0-12 months. Proceeds benefit the Northampton Community Music Center Scholarship Fund. Golden Bird is a Pioneer Valley based, Music-for-All-Ages acoustic duo formed in 2016 by Rachel F. Hirsch and Kevin Dee. Rachel and Kevin set out to create music that grown ups would enjoy listening to just as much as their children. Golden Bird has been delighting audiences of all ages with their quirky and catchy songs, puppets, silly instruments, and dance parties. Rachel and Kevin have extensive backgrounds in introducing the world of performing arts to children. Along with performing and composing, Kevin teaches guitar and other music instruction to children (and adults) privately and with the Community Music School of Springfield. In addition to being a musician Rachel is also a stage and voice over actor. She brings these skills to her many years working as a child caretaker, teacher of creative play and theater classes for the under-5 set, and her own mommy-hood. Founded in 1986, the Northampton Community Music Center is a not-for-profit arts organization whose mission is to foster the love and pursuit of music within our community through quality education, performances, and activities that are accessible to all. NCMC’s programming is made possible, in part, by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency (www.massculturalcouncil.org). For more information about NCMC, visit: www.ncmc.net
