Red Grammer in concert

Submitted By Carol Zilli

Considered Òthe best voice in childrenÕs musicÓ by ParentsÕ Magazine and whose album ÒTeaching PeaceÓ was named by The All Music Guide as Òone of the top five childrenÕs recordings of all time,Ó Grammy Nominee Red Grammer continues to ÒBe Bop His BestÓ for children everywhere.

Music for Minors II (MFMII), the nonprofit organization that is sponsoring Red in concert on Saturday, March 1, completely agrees and once again provides this fun-filled family and community event. The concert is MFMIIÕs main fundraiser for this their 26th year of service keeping music in local schools and will also feature approximately 200 of the children they serve, performing on stage with the artist.

Red GrammerÕs glorious voice, award-winning songwriting and thoughtful commitment to the best in all of us endear him to parents and educators everywhere. But ultimately it is his irrepressible sense of play and genuine love and respect for children that make his songs of oneness, character, conflict resolution, and community so beloved by kids all across the globe.

Concert proceeds benefit the nonprofitÕs annual music training program for community volunteers who become music docents sharing weekly music lessons in childrenÕs classrooms in the Tri-City area and other nearby school districts since 1988, due to budgetary cutbacks in arts education.

Help support the MFMII mission of bringing music to many more children in need by attending the concert or becoming a sponsor of the event which can include purchasing tickets for underprivileged children, placing an ad in the concert program, or helping to underwrite venue and artist costs.

Red Grammer believes in the MFMII mission as he is a strong advocate for quality music for children. His songs reach and teach children meaningful messages about character, family, peace, and how to be the best you can be while also reinforcing math, reading, and social studies skills at the same time and children never forget them.

DonÕt miss this unique musical experience and RedÕs only East Bay performance this year!
