'Uncle Gerry' Concert Comes to Morrow March 9

A local music institution — Music and More with Kelly — is celebrating 15 years with the concert event.

Music and More with Kelly is hosting a children's concert on March 9 to celebrate Maplewood-based Kelly Heinze's 15th year of teaching the highly acclaimed international children's program, Music Together, as well as the 25th anniversary of Music Together itself.

The guest star will be Music Together recording artist "Uncle" Gerry Dignan, singing along with the Music and More teaching staff.

The show will be held at Morrow Memorial Church, 600 Ridgewood Road in Maplewood on March 9th from 5:30 to 6:30 pm.

Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music and movement curriculum for children between birth and grade two (and the adults who love them). Originally offered to the public in 1987, Music Together pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate, early childhood music curriculum that emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement.

According to Kenneth K. Guilmartin, Founder/Director of Music Together, "All children have the ability, from birth, to learn music. At Music Together, we introduce children to the pleasures of actively making music, which is critical for their music development. We have been providing families with the tools to joyfully and enthusiastically make music together for 25 years and are proud to have impacted so many lives."

Kelly Heinze, Founder of Music and More with Kelly, LLC and Director of Music Together in Maplewood, South Orange, Millburn, and East Hanover, is thrilled to host this event and welcome the terrific "Uncle Gerry" to the stage at Morrow Church. Gerry Dignan has performed around the world, but he is best known locally for his vocals on all of the original Music Together CD's.

Heinze, who started Music Together 15 years ago out of the local YMCA with 20 students her first semester, has now serviced 15,000 families.

"I am super excited about this event. I know the children are going to love seeing and hearing Uncle Gerry in person. I am so grateful to have serviced this fantastic community and provided this amazing curriculum. My anniversary gift will be to see all those smiling faces at the concert!"
