Join us for a special night of music FOR KIDS (& adults) with Mister Chris And Friends w/ Miss Andrea Musical Munchkins of Vermont! $10 suggested donation to support Waterbury starting points network.
The Waterbury Starting Points Network is made up of a vibrant group of Home Childcare and Preschool Providers that live in Washington County. Network provider members are unique as they provide professional, emotional, and ethical support to one another to foster high quality early childhood experiences to children and families in the community. Any funds raised will be distributed to the providers to assist in adding musical curriculum to their individualized programs.
The Mister Chris and Friends Band strives to illuminate the simple beauty of childhood, parenthood, and community. Singer-songwriter and educator, Chris Dorman, writes, records, and performs thoughtful and tender songs that captivate multi-generational audiences. These original songs are written with the most sensitive ears in mind and are the foundation for his music and movement program, Music For Sprouts, as well as a new children’s television show called Mister Chris and Friends, created by Chris and produced by Vermont PBS. Chris lives with his family on their community farm, Bread & Butter Farm, on the town line of Shelburne and South Burlington.
