IN Her Own Words

"I can't wait to perform my first Virtual Family Concerts of 2022!" says Laurie Berkner. "I'm so happy to be able to continue sharing my livestreams and have the chance to celebrate love and family on Valentine's Day with everyone who watches."

"There are so many things kids and families can do to get ready," says Laurie Berkner. "They can cut out and decorate hearts to share onscreen and choose an instrument like a tambourine or a shaky egg so they can play along with the music. Everyone should be sure to pick out a stuffed animal to use during the show, and of course, having some special Valentine's Day snacks on hand would be a great idea, too!"

What’s It All About

What the world needs now is love, sweet love! Iconic children's musician Laurie Berkner invites everyone to celebrate the sweetest day of the year at two special "Valentine's Day" LIVE Virtual Family Concerts on Sunday, February 13 at 12:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Laurie's concert website: HERE. For double the fun, a family ticket grants admission to one or both livestreams.

Laurie encourages fans of all ages to decorate their homes for Valentine's Day and to wear something fun and valentine-y to the show – shades of pink and red are the order of the day, and love-hearts are the shape of the hour!

What's Happening

Laurie Berkner's Valentine's Day shows will feature songs of love, family, and friendship, like "A Hug From My Mama," "I Love You Daddy," "My Family," "Blow A Kiss," and "There's A Little Wheel A-Turnin' In My Heart," along with an array of Laurie's greatest hits, including "We Are The Dinosaurs," "Victor Vito," "Pig On Her Head," "Rocketship Run," "The Goldfish (Let's Go Swimming)," "Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz), and more. Laurie hopes everyone will join in the Valentine's Day spirit and sing and dance along.

The Laurie Berkner Band's drummer, Bobby Golden, will be a special guest at this show.

Laurie Berkner's virtual family concerts are full-length, visually-enriched, interactive experiences, so kids might see images of a rocketship blasting off during "Rocketship Run" or a little wheel turning during "There's A Little Wheel A-Turnin' In My Heart." Kids and grownups alike are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas with Laurie in a live chat throughout the show.

A fun-filled virtual lobby will feature pre-show music and videos, Valentine's Day games, and a fun heart-decorating craft activity to bring to the concert. For those who'd like to spend a few minutes chatting one-on-one in a video call with Laurie after the show, special Meet-and-Greet tickets are available.

 Mid-January already and we are zooming along unwrapping and reviewing wonderful books to share with your little ones.  Christmas and New Years are memories now and we look forward to Valentine's Day which is a day to express our love and happiness with those around us.  

I hope you can plan to attend Laurie Berkner's Valentine's Day Concert. It sounds fantastic!  With all the stress and irregularities of these times it would be fun to set some time aside with your entire family and partake of some songs and old-fashioned fun once again wouldn't it?  Everyone has been under loads of stress through these uncertain times and this virtual party would be a lovely diversion from the lockdowns, school closures and mask-wearing.  I highly recommend a Valentine's Day Party get-away to lift your spirits and celebrate the Day of Love with those you love!   Happy Saturday everyone. Please join me again on Monday as I unwrap more wonderful books for you and your kids to enjoy!  You can follow me on:
