Parents' Choice Award-winning Boston band, Vanessa Trien and the Jumping Monkeys, are delighted to perform at Celebrate Israel with a rousing, interactive show for kids and their families. This audience-participatory, folk-roots concert with world music influences will include many of Vanessa's hit songs, such as "Tickle Monster," "Moomooheehawbaabaaneigh," and "Driving in my Car," along with songs arranged especially for the festival based on popular Hebrew songs. Audience members will join in a parade "Carnival Day" style or take a ride above the treetops in a pretend bubble. Vanessa is a Harvard-trained expert in early childhood education and she really knows what gets kids moving and grooving. As Boston Children's Music puts it, "Vanessa's shows are perfect... She has some sort of magical energy that makes all of her shows super fun..." Check out Vanessa's songs and videos here: http://www.vanessatrien.com.
