Musiquita's artist mission is to inspire and empower children and families through a diverse array of musical genres. We believe that music is a universal language that has the power to foster language development, promote cultural awareness and bring people together. Our inclusive approach celebrates diversity and encourages participation from all backgrounds and abilities. We strive to create a safe and welcoming space where children and adults can express themselves, build confidence and have fun while learning.
Join husband and wife duo Blanca Cecilia González and Jesse Elder for Musiquita, a playful exploration of Music in Spanish and English. This program combines music, language and culture into a joyful celebration, appropriate for all ages.
Blanca holds a Master of Music Degree from The Juilliard School in New York City, and Jesse is the former Music Director of Postmodern Jukebox. A passion project for both of these professional musicians, Musiquita builds and strengthens Spanish and English language skills through vibrant and approachable songs. Blanca and Jesse use violin, piano, ukulele, melodica, voice, percussion and movement to thoughtfully guide listeners through an array of music and verse.
As a bilingual Spanish-English family with two young children, González and Elder make learning engaging and enjoyable. Sharing their own experiences in a relaxed and supportive environment, Blanca and Jesse present easy ways to incorporate other cultures into your everyday life. Musiquita primarily focuses on Spanish and English tunes, but will also include glimpses into other world cultures. Traditional, classical, jazz, folk, pop, original compositions and more are all highlighted in Musiquita, appealing to a wide range of taste and energy levels.
Musiquita is the perfect way to bring the whole community together and share a meaningful connection. Join us!
