Dave Ruch Family Concert: Songs and Storytelling from Cultures Around the World


With guitar, Indian tabla drum, European octave mandolin, and an exotic “pocket instrument” with global roots, Dave Ruch will lead the audience on a fun-filled musical journey across the world. Children will sing along (in English, Nigerian, Italian, Japanese, and Russian!), answer questions, play musical games and act out songs. Some audience members will be invited to help Dave, and everyone will have a chance to touch and play one of the instruments after the concert.

Explore the unique ways in which people around the world live and the many similarities we share.

Free admission
