A FREE Performance for the Entire Family: Kennedy Center Presents They Might Be Giants

We received this event from Erin Dowdy of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Perfoming Arts:

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts presents They Might Be Giants in a free, all-ages concert Saturday, October 2, 2010 at 6 p.m. on the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage.  The concert celebrates the comprehensive redesign of ARTSEDGE—the Kennedy Center’s national K-12 arts education website.

They Might Be Giants (TMBG), founded by John Linnell and John Flansburgh in New York City, are often joined on stage and on recordings by Dan Miller, Danny Wienkauf, and Marty Beller. TMBG’s current DVD/CD release is titled Here Comes Science. They won the 2009 Grammy® for Best Children’s Album (Music) for a kids project called Here Come the 123s, as well as a Grammy®  in 2001 for Best Song in a Motion Picture or Television Series for the theme to Malcolm in the Middle (“Boss of Me”). TMBG can be heard every night in the orchestral and rock open for the Daily Show, and the opening and closing themes to the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Higgleytown Heros. In addition to performing frequently, making videos and podcasts, and doing a fair amount of television work, they are hard at work on a new album.

ARTSEDGE is a premier Internet resource for arts and arts-integrated educational content.  The new site features easier site navigation and display, as well as brand-new sections geared toward students and families. Developed more than 20 years ago as a cooperative agreement between the National Endowment for the Arts, the United States Department of Education, and the Kennedy Center, ARTSEDGE is a go-to site for educators around the country looking for lesson plans, multi-media enhanced instruction, and performance footage.
