Rebecca Frezza's show will feature tunes from her newest album, 'Special Kind of Day,' which was recently honored with a Parents' Choice Award, including their newest hit "Spooky Dance," as well as favorites from all three of her previous award-winning CDs. As "Frezza Fans" have come to expect, there'll be dancing, as Rebecca Frezza & Big Truck combine pop/rock, country and jazz styles, a sprinkling of world music elements, high-energy dance moves, kid friendly lyrics, and lots of three-part harmony, sung by Big Truck's enthusiastic and thoroughly choreographed back-up singers. The show features a global range of instruments, from flute, harmonica and bongos to African percussion.
Before Rebecca Frezza began rocking the younger set, she was a high-kicking hoofer performing in the worldwide touring companies of shows like 'Evita' and 'A Chorus Line.' Marriage and kids inspired her to begin a new performing career, bridging the gap between music for toddlers and adults. Says Rebecca, "Once kids start elementary school, they don't have easy access to age-appropriate music, music that's 'just for them.' That's what I'm trying to create."
The show is appropriate for ages three to nine and lasts 60 minutes. Children are invited to wear their Halloween costumes to the concert. Pick up free assigned seating tickets (limit 8 per person) at the Auditorium door starting at noon, and return when doors open at 1:50 p.m. This series is made possible by contributions to the Friends of the Greenwich Library.
