Did you know that the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park hosts live educational performances most days of the week at the Old U.S. Mint and on Saturdays in Armstrong Park?
Aaron Nigel Smith, founder of FUNdamentals of Music and Movement, a national arts program designed for pre-school and elementary school aged children, joins an all-star cast of New Orleans musicians for a special concert designed to get kids moving at the Old U.S. Mint on Tuesday, February 19 from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
To give you a little background, Aaron’s debut CD release Let’s Pretend received a National Parenting Publication Award (NPPA) and iParenting Award. He also collaborated with Ziggy Marley on B is for Bob, a Bob Marley Children’s CD, which you probably remember hearing back in the day before Noggin became Nick Jr.
Aaron is also on the cast of the PBS Kids Emmy Award winning show Between the Lions. His newest release, Everyone Loves to Dance also received a Parent’s Choice and NPPA Awards. He is featured on several new releases including Buckwheat Zydeco’s Bayou Boogie and the 2012 Parents Choice Award winning Welcome to the Village, that features the voices of more than 300 children from New York, Los Angeles, Portland and the Cura Rotary Home near Nairobi, Kenya.
