Do your kids enjoy live music? Head out to Gardner Hall on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 14, for a free concert, where all the musicians have developmental disabilities.
“It will be an amazing, family-friendly evening showcasing the talents of these individuals who often wouldn't be thought of as performers,” says Max Puhala, co-founder of Push Play Sing!, a Raleigh-based business putting on the concert. Shakers will be handed out at the concert so the audience — kids and parents with and without disabilities — can participate.
Started in 2014, Push Play Sing! has a mission to empower kids with disabilities by hosting hands-on musical workshops throughout the Triangle. At the workshops, attendees are encouraged to “push MIDI pads, play keyboards and guitars, and sing to their hearts' content.” Push Play Sing! then arranges those captured sounds in unique recordings that are offered for sale on its website.
