The MTC Kids Jam concert series is specially designed with families in mind! Join us in the MTC lobby at 10 a.m. for art activities, followed by an hour-long concert with an acclaimed children's musician.

Two-time Grammy-nominated Pierce Freelon’s joyful music blends hip-hop, electronic jazz, and soul. His modern and dynamic sound is inspired by his journey as a millennial dad and is carefully crafted for today’s modern families. Through honest and playful lyrics, rich melodies, and fresh beats, he shares his story and welcomes kids and adults into his world.

Freelon’s critically acclaimed work has been featured on the “Today” Show, NPR, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Parents Magazine, and the PBS Kids’ animated series “Alma’s Way” and “Work it Out Wombats!” He is also the cocreator and talent of the PBS Kids’ podcast “Jamming on the Job,” and has written two children's picture books with Little Brown.
