NORTH STONINGTON — Nationally-acclaimed children’s singer Steve Songs, who has appeared in such PBS shows such as "Curious George," "Clifford the Big Red Dog," "The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That" and "Peg + Cat," will join musicians from around the region Wednesday for a virtual music festival designed to raise funds to replace the playground at North Stonington Elementary School.
The concert, billed as a "family-friendly event," will include performances by North Stonington’s Justin Gigliello who will kick off the event at 5 p.m. Next will come a "children’s segment" with Songs and Michael Noonan, followed by performances by the Hound Dogs, James Harris, and others from 6 to 9 p.m. Students from North Stonington Elementary School will perform in between.
To attend, make a donation at milltownmonitor.com/playground, and an invitation will be sent via email. The Red Onion, a local restaurant, will donate 10 percent of their sales to the playground rebuilding effort on July 1 if diners mention the playground fundraiser when ordering.
