Studio Bell will host a full day of family fun on February 19, featuring scratch DJ extraordinaire Kid Koala performing ‘Music to Draw To’ sets, along with so much more.

Kid Koala is a world-renowned scratch DJ, music producer, composer, and award-winning graphic novelist, whose unforgettable ‘Music To Draw To’ sets invite participants to listen while putting pen to paper. It’s an interactive group drawing session guided and soundtracked by one of Canada’s most creative performers. Drawing materials will be provided. Studio Bell will be open on Monday, February 19, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Purchase your advance tickets for Family Day here.

Family Day at Studio Bell activities include:

  • Kid Koala’s ‘Music To Draw To’
  • Jett Thunders’ Air Guitar Workshop
  • NMC Collection show and tell, instrument demos, and crafts
  • Capoeira dance performance and campfire sing-alongs
  • NMC Educators throughout the building to help you and your family rock

“Last year, we were overwhelmed by the number of Calgarians who came out to support our very first Family Day event,” said Adam Fox, NMC’s Director of Programs. “Seeing families connecting with each other through music is exactly what we had hoped for. With this year’s lineup of activities, we hope families will find even more to enjoy, and that visitors will consider becoming annual NMC Members, too.”
