Overture Center’s Kids in the Rotunda is a series of free artistic programs designed for children and families which runs from the last weekend in September through April. This popular performing arts series on the Rotunda Stage offers a relaxed, kid-friendly environment in which to enjoy a diverse lineup of local and regional musicians, storytellers, jugglers, theater troupes, magicians and dancers. The programs run every Saturday at 9:30 am, 11 am and 1 pm (each performance lasts around 45 minutes). The 1 pm performances are sign language interpreted.
This week’s performer is Laura Doherty.
“Laura Doherty acoustically rocks your kid’s world with her breezy folk-pop tunes for the whole family! The Chicago-based children’s artist delivers a highly interactive show that includes songs about living in the city, and more, as seen through a child’s eyes. Her new award winning CD “Kids in the City” pays tribute to her kinda town…Chicago, and has hit the XM radio airwaves and garnered great reviews in the press.
Performing locally and nationally, Doherty has played on famed Chicago stages such as the Old Town School of Folk Music and Milennium Park’s Pritzker Pavillion, and last Fall brought her upbeat concert to a packed house at Philly’s World Cafe Live. “
