What better way to celebrate the Summer of Love than to focus on family? Musician Vered brings the joys of family life to all her music. Inspired by her work as a music therapist and psychotherapist, as well as being a mom of three, Vered approaches family relationships with wonder, curiosity, and humor. Vered’s music is reminiscent of a Doo-Wop band with award-winning albums like Good Morning My Love, Hello My Baby, and Songs for Sisters and Brothers. Vered will be playing with her longtime bandmate Rob Jost, who plays for the Sesame Street band and on the hit Broadway show Dear Evan Hanson.

Due to limited space, this free event is first come first served. A line will begin at the entrance to the lower level Let’s Dance! exhibit one hour before the event.

    CMOM focuses on four priority areas to impact children in ways that will last a lifetime:

    • Early childhood education prepares children for success in school.
    • Creativity in the arts and sciences inspires creative and analytical thinking skills for lifelong learning.
    • Healthy lifestyles programs provide a blueprint for a family's physical, emotional and environmental well-being.
    • Exploration of world cultures gives children awareness, understanding and context for the diverse society in which we all live.
