Creative Expressions concert to feature Dr. Seuss

MILLEDGEVILLE —  

Creative Expressions in conjunction with music therapy students from Georgia College will host a musical concert titled “Music Inspired by Dr. Seuss." 

The performance is scheduled for Thursday, April 11 at 10 a.m. at the Goldstein Center for the Performing Arts on the Georgia Military College campus. The concert will feature original songs written by performers with disabilities from the Life Enrichment Center and music therapy students from Georgia College.  

"This is our 13th year holding musical concerts and we try to have a different theme for each one," said Katie Whipple, Creative Expressions coordinator and music therapist. 

For this performance, the theme will reflect the works of Dr. Seuss. This is the first time Creative Expressions has had a concert with this type of theme, but, according to Whipple, the group wanted to choose a theme that would appeal to the whole family, regardless of their age. Songs are original works and range in a variety in styles. 

"We've got everything from a rap song for Green Eggs & Ham to instrumental pieces for different Dr. Seuss works," Whipple said.  

Music in Motion, the Harmonettes Handbell Choir, the Jungle Royales, Circular Motion and Good Vibrations are five of the groups that, with the help of the music therapy students, will perform songs such as “Cat in the Hat Remix” and “Unless” in this free-admission concert. 

"The concert is free and open to the public. Donations are very much appreciated as it goes right back into the program to help support performers with disabilities," Whipple said. 

Whipple, along with the performers, is enthusiastic about this upcoming performance, but this feeling is a normal emotion for them for each concert they prepare for.

"We're excited about all our concerts because we enjoy showing off the talents of people with disabilities to the public," said Whipple. "We've been working with the music therapy students all semester and the concert is just an accumulation of all the hard work we done."
