This week on The Children’s Hour, we learn about what it means to create live music with purpose. Grammy winning children’s musicians, Dan and Claudia Zanes are transforming how their music is enjoyed with their commitment to sensory friendly concerts. We learn what they are doing to make their concerts fully inclusive of people of all abilities, and we hear some of their new release, Let Love Be Your Guide.
