Program Coordinators: Thank you for considering booking a concert for your festival or entertainment series. I'd look forward to working with you!
As a full time children's author and poet, and as an award-winning songwriter, I've provided high-participation concerts for communities throughout the country as well as in Japan, Germany, and Guam. Concerts include movement songs, hand motions, puppets and props, call-and-response songs, and interactive stories and poetry.
A typical children's concert runs 50 minutes to an hour. I can provide my own sound system when needed. Fees are listed below, but because travel distance may affect rates a bit (and because I understand budgets vary), please send an email if you would like to discuss rates.
"The email board is 'a buzz' with how much fun everyone had. There is already talk to ask you to come again next year! You were great with the kids, and interacted with them so well. Thanks again!"
- Lynne Palmisano, DS King County
"Your performance today at West Fenwick Park was fantastic! You were captivating on stage and received a very positive reception by the audience. It was quite a delight to work with you (and do the Hand-Jive with you too!) We are proud to have you as a part of our program."
- Ronda Billerbeck, Cultural Programs Manager, Kent Parks and Recrecation
"The program you shared with our families was incredible! It was so fun to watch the kids be so engaged with all the music and poetry. It amazes me that in all the excitement, they really soak in what is going on."
- Lori Palombo, Secretary, Marysville ECEAP
"Dear Mr. Ode, You were the best person I ever heard. You made me lagh my hed off."
