Join a joyous, multicultural music celebration the whole family can enjoy! Elena Moon Park brings her acclaimed and catchy album Rabbit Days and Dumplings in our very first family concert. Rabbit Days is a celebration of folk and children's music from all over East Asia, reinterpreted to mix various musical traditions, languages, styles, and stories.

These tunes range from northern Japanese sea shanties to Tibetan jump rope rhymes, joyous Korean harvest sing-a-longs, and Taiwanese train songs. Elena, who also plays fiddle, trumpet, and mandolin for Grammy Award-winning all-ages folk rock band Dan Zanes and Friends, leads a fun and adventurous group of musicians for this cross-cultural musical fiesta.

Expect to do some dancing and sing along to tunes in Korean, Japanese, Tibetan, Cantonese, Mandarin, and English!
