Sprout is getting musical. Beginning Monday, March 25, SING IT, LAURIE! - a new animated musical preschool series - will make it's debut on the 24-hour preschool network. Co-created by family recording artist LAURIE BERKNER and JOSH SELIG of Emmy-winning Little Airplane Productions, the series will showcase Berkner's voice and music, along with Grammy-nominated rocker LISA LOEB (voicing twin sisters).
Just days after I posted the first Halloween news for the 2012 season comes the first Christmas news for the year. Actually, it's only sorta the first, but we'll call it the 'first official' piece: acclaimed children's musician LAURIE BERKNER is releasing a Christmas album. Two Tomatoes Records/Razor & Tie will release A LAURIE BERKNER CHRISTMAS on October 30th, a new collection containing fifteen seasonal songs, three of which are original tracks: “Santa’s Coming To My House Tonight,” “Candy Cane Jane” and “Christmas Lights.”
For the local readers near Rock Father HQ in the North Suburbs of Chicago, children's entertainer LAURIE BERKNER has just announced a special solo show at the Ravinia Music Festival in Highland Park on July 28. The performance will be presented by the Kraft Great Kids Series, which will also feature The Elgin Youth Symphony Orchestra, Ralph's World, and more throughout the summer season.
