When both of my sons were babies and toddlers, we loved attending our local Music Together classes and have such fond memories of singing "Tingalayo" and "All Around the Kitchen Cock-a-doodle-doodle-doo"!
Now, this wonderful organization, committed to family bonding through musical participation, will host a unique celebration, with programs all around the world, in honor of the International Day of Peace.
Here are excerpts from a press release, detailing the local event, here in Hartford on September 21st:
