Fourth Annual Children’s Music Festival Coming to Metro Libraries


Couch potatoes, put on your dancing shoes and get ready to boogie!

The Metropolitan Library System’s Fourth Annual Children’s Music Festival pumps up the volume and has kids ready to rock the library to the sounds of Aaron Nigel Smith from “Between the Lions” and Dino O’Dell and the Veloci-rappers.

“The Children’s Music Festival,” said MLS Director of Outreach Dana Morrow, “is original songs that tell stories and celebrate reading and the arts. It’s interactive, fun and participatory, and it’s for kids of all ages.  Through this and other musical events and series we’ve learned that kids respond to music better than just about anything else.  A wide variety of musical styles is almost as much fun for them as browsing a toy store—or reading a good book.”

The Festival continues over five days in July and 18 libraries.

Children’s Music Festival is co-sponsored by Arts Council of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
