21 Jan Vered and the Babes Perform Upbeat Family Concert at the Jewish Museum
Vered and the Babes will star in a hip concert for families at the Jewish Museum on Sunday, February 21 at 11:30 am. The band, featuring Vered Benhorin with Rob Jost and Matt Hilgenberg, performs funny, poignant, and upbeat melodies, reminiscent of doo-wop, from their hit albums Good Morning My Love, praised by the Parents’ Choice Foundation as having “warmth enough to melt the polar ice cap.”
Vered and the Babes play a variety of instruments, ranging from French horn and trumpet to pots and pans, with kids and parents alike jumping and singing along. The concert program includes songs geared to helping new parents bond with their babies as well as tunes for children up to age 6.
Tickets are $18 per adult; $13 per child; $15 adult Jewish Museum family level member; and $11 child Jewish Museum family level member. This concert is for children ages 2 to 5. Adults are asked to accompany their children. For further information regarding family programs at the Jewish Museum, the public may call 212.423.3337.
