5/30/15 - Wonderpalooza - Mr. Kneel


Wonderpalooza is a monthly family concert series at Wonderscope. Our upcoming performances include Mr. Kneel on May 30 at 11:00 a.m.

Mr Kneel's mission is to create positive, informative and self-esteem building music for children. Music with an educational and developmentally appropriate message that educators and parents will embrace, but so good that kids will want to listen to it again and again. Mr Kneel creates inspired original Hip-Hop music which assists educators and parents in promoting children’s social, emotional and cognitive development. If you don't already have plans, be sure to put this on your schedule. 

Jump, shake and wiggle to the beat with some of Kansas City's top kid-friendly musicians.  Fun for the entire family and FREE with museum admission. Mark your calendars and hope you can join us.
