A Celebration of Song for Children & Families
The Guy Mendilow Ensemble opens up a world of music to children in this deeply interactive global adventure. Uplifting, funny and fun, this show starts with the premise that children deserve the respect and dignity of “real people.” With songs, stories and instruments from cultures worldwide, GME introduces children to the amazing ways people make music with their voices, bodies, and whatever else they find at-hand.
“Our audience of 800 children was transfixed. I was spellbound. This is the kind of experience that can open your eyes and ears to possibilities never imagined...
I asked the children as they were leaving the theatre after the concert how the experience had been for them. It was the first time I heard unanimous appreciation.
If you are trying to open your audiences to new horizons, if you are trying to expose the arts to children or adults, if you seek a new experience for yourself, I highly recommend the Guy Mendilow Ensemble to you.”

“What an amazing job of demonstrating that “you can make music from everything” while engaging the students for the entire hour! All the kids were smiling as they left and I heard many comments like, ‘This was really fun!’ and ‘Best music ever!’”
