YouTube Video Premiere


Friday, January 22, 2021
3 – 4 pm

Ages 1-6

“It’s no exaggeration that Weinstone has changed the musical geography of New York,” says Time Out New York Kids. Groove to the original rockin’ sounds of David Weinstone, founder of Music for Aardvarks classes, as he shares his ever-popular tunes in a special video premiere. Hear “Big Old Tree” just in time for Tu B’Shevat (the birthday of the trees), and celebrate being a New York City kid with cool, catchy favorites like “Modern Art,” and “Taxi!”

Striking works of art from the Museum's collection, including paintings by artists Maira Kalman, Miriam Shapiro, and others, will be featured throughout the concert. Bring out crayons and markers to create art together while listening to the music. In addition, Weinstone will do a song and reading from his notable book release, All My Friends Are Fast Asleep.

This performance is Free with RSVP, one ticket per household.
