BloomingSongs to have free event


BloomingSongs is having a free event beginning at 12:30 p.m. July 14 at the Monroe County Public Library in Bloomington. 

The event will begin with a “Reinvention Parade” with the Jefferson Street Parade Band. At 1 p.m., following the parade, attendees will gather in the auditorium to hear music from the second BloomingSongs collection, “Phlox of a Feather.”

There will be performances by members of the IU Children’s Choir, Maria and Lucia Walker, Kate Long of Rodeola and more, according to a BloomingSongs press release.

At 2:30 p.m., a teacher/family workshop will take place, of “particular interest to early childhood specialists and area music teachers,” according to the press release. 

BloomingSongs’ contributors will share activities that go with their music — Swedish folk songs with Malin Sunstein, tango with Winnie Cheung, and viol and simple Renaissance dancing with Eric Rubis. 

All events are free and participants will receive online access to "Phlox of a Feather" and a BloomingSongs CD.
