Children's Concert Featuring Musicians from the Juilliard School
Sunday, December 21, 2014, 1:15 - 2:15PM - StoryCorner
Wow! Musicians from the Juilliard School are coming to Danbury! Children who love music will love this lively performance. See the instruments up close and hear the beautiful music that is created by these talented performers. The musicians will explain the music and how playing an instrument is a lot like playing a sport.
The Juilliard School’s mission is to provide the highest caliber of artistic education for gifted musicians, dancers, and actors from around the world, so that they may achieve their fullest potential as artists, leaders, and global citizens.
The Danbury Music Centre was founded in 1935 to support and present classical music in the greater Danbury area. The Centre is housed in the former Danbury Library building at 256 Main Street

1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App
The 1000 Books Foundation is proud to announce the release of the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App. My son loves playing with an iPhone and iPad. The 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App allows him to “scan” books into his permanent library. We then just simply click the books that he has read and the App tracks his progress toward completing 1,000. The App has the ability to track multiple readers if you are reading to more than one child (or if you simply want to track your own reading). Best of all the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten iPhone App is free.
