The Canton Rotary will bring a big dose of holiday cheer to the Village Theater at Cherry Hill as part of its Candy Canes and Kiddie Rock programming efforts this holiday season.
In addition to a special-invitation-only concert offered to Headstart and Starfish families on the morning of Dec. 8, the Rotary will offer two public concert opportunities on both Friday, Dec. 7 and Saturday, Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. featuring "Mr. Steve" of SteveSongs, a rising star on the national kids’ music scene.
This musical adventure aims to delight families with participatory songs, clever lyrics, and entertaining melodies that kids and adults can both enjoy.
A recipient of numerous music awards, Mr. Steve is best known for his role on national television as the co-host of the PBS Kids morning block featuring favorites such as Curious George and Clifford.
The Rotary invites families to put on their holiday finest for the Saturday, Dec. 8 special fundraising concert extravaganza at 7 p.m., complete with strolling characters including Santa Claus, a milk-and-cookies bar and more.
Two-time winner of the Parents’ Choice Gold Awards, Steve Roslonek, also know as Mr. Steve, has performed nationally at more than 2,000 venues, including the White House, the Kennedy Center, Symphony Space in New York City and Fenway Park in Boston. According to Mr. Steve, "The experiment from the beginning was making music that both kids and parents would enjoy, so that it could really be a full family experience."
