Singer Joe Reilly visits Zoomazium

Friday, February 24, 2012 11:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Bring your dancing shoes!

Join singer Joe Reilly in Zoomazium
11:30 a.m., Friday, February 24th

If you’ve been to Zoomazium between the hours of 11:30am and noon recently, you’ve probably heard some of Joe Reilly’s music as part of Shake, Rattle, and Roar (a program where toddlers and their grownups are invited to dance and play instruments to animal and nature-themed music). With such songs as “Biodiversity”, “Decomposers”, and the very catchy “Turkey Vulture” rap, Joe’s music has been a hit with staff and visitors alike. We like it so much, we’ve even created a special frog-themed puppet show around his song “Amphibians”!

Joe has been an artist-in-residence at the Islandwood School on Bainbridge Island (2011, 2012), the Michigan Alliance for Environmental and Outdoor Education Conference (2010, 2011), and the Great Lakes Bioneers Traverse City (2010) and Detroit (2011) Conferences.

Joe has recorded seven albums of his music, including two children’s albums of environmental songs, Children of the Earth (2007) and Let’s Go Outside (2011). Children of the Earth was featured on National Public Radio’s Living On Earth program in 2008. The title song from Let’s Go Outside was selected as the official song for National Get Outdoors Day in June 2011.
