Creole for Kidz and the History of Zydeco

October 3, 2017

Matheny families will have the opportunity to take part in a special musical evening on Tuesday, October 17th:  "Creole for Kidz and the History of Zydeco.”  We’ll have a light dinner at 5:10 and then travel by bus at 5:45 to Sangamon Auditorium for the performance by Terrance Simien and the Zydeco Experience.  Zydeco celebrates the Creole culture of southern Louisiana in a fusion of New Orleans funk-reggae-world-blues-roots music with influences of African, French, Spanish, and Native American musical styles.  This is a FAMILY event; children must be accompanied by an adult to attend.  Families are asked to return the yellow RSVP slip to let us know if  they will be attending and how many will be coming.  Bus permission slips will be sent home to the families who return the RSVP slips.
