WXPN Presents The Next Kids Corner Music Festival, 11/17
Millersville University’s FAMILY FUN FEST series – Barry Kornhauser’s yearlong series of programs for kids 5-10 years old and their parents, grandparents or guardians – presents its next program in conjunction with WXPN at the just-opened Winter Center on the Millersville campus. The Next Kids Corner Music Festival is hosted by Kathy O'Connell and featuring performances by two bands: Steven Courtney + the Suitcase Musicians at 11am, The Diggity Dudes at Noon and a Musical Petting Zoo.
Steven Courtney + the Suitcase Musicians - Steven is a singer/ songwriter who has performed over 5,200 concerts to date, recorded 30 full-length albums, received a 2011 Parents Choice Award for the Million Smiles To Go album, collected 7 Children’s Music Web Awards and the Arpeggio Award for “Outstanding Work with Children” through the Arts, as well as produce four concert-length performance videos and an award winning Children’s TV series. Few artists are as committed to expanding the boundaries of kids music and family entertainment as Steven Courtney and we are excited to have him join us for our inaugural event in Lancaster County!
The Diggity Dudes play hip music for hip kids and their equally hip parents. A typical set covers everything from pet rocks to disco moves to science experiments to presidential physical fitness, all delivered via ultra-catchy melodies over funky and danceable grooves. Interactive skits, audience participation and a lighthearted comedic twist are what make a Diggity Dudes show more than a show - it's truly an experience. Ultimately, the Dudes are committed to helping provide all the young Dudes and Dudettes with an opportunity to experience the power and joy of a life enriched by music.
