Music Together of Union County's teachers will be singing their top tunes, along with a special guest, at a 25th Anniversary benefit next month.
"It is a great program, and really a nice way to not only let the kids socialize but also parents," Cranford parent Michael Strouse told Patch.
The music program focuses on the early years in a kid's musical life.
“It’s so great that Music Together of Union County is giving back to the local community with this concert,” Cranford resident Vincent Chin, a Music Together attendee said in a press release.
There will be a special appearance by the musician Gerry Dignan, professionally known as “Uncle” Gerry, and considered by fans as a combination of John Denver, Andrea Bocelli, Kenny Loggins and Francis of Assisi, according to his personal web page.
Dignan, a former member of the Chicago Symphony Chorus, is the featured artist for Music Together classes.
“It is sensational. Families in my classes are so excited to see and hear Uncle Gerry in person. I hope many local families will come out and enjoy a fun afternoon of music with their children,” said director Judy Wilson-Enuco.
Babies through 8-year-olds and their families are invited to the March 9 concert that will benefit local PTAs, according to a statement.
