Percussionist and Educator Gabriel Globus-Hoenich is well known for his creative and joyful music-making approach. In addition to his performance career across genres, working with artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Arturo O’Farrill, and Yuja Wang, he also remains committed to his work as a teaching artist, performing children’s shows and working with budding young musicians around the world. Join him and his friends in a lively jam session, where children can play percussion instruments and dance along to the beat!

Movement and musical discovery take flight in this series for the littlest Caramoor attendees. Located in our flexible and accessible Education Center, this program geared for children ages 2–6 (and their caregivers) brings in world-class artists who will invite children to sing, wiggle, and dance to diverse styles of music.

This performance welcomes children who are neurodivergent, have sensory sensitivities, or just need a bit more space to enjoy the music. Modifications include relaxed house rules, and extra space for movement.
