MISTER G Concert and Book Release

February 18, 2020
$8 (Members $7.50)

MISTER G (Ben Gundersheimer) is a Latin GRAMMY Award-winning artist, author, activist, and educator. Hailed as “a bilingual rock star” by the Washington Post and "irresistible" by  People magazine, he tours internationally, playing everywhere from Lollapalooza and Lincoln Center to climate change rallies on Capitol Hill. His spirited bilingual performances aim to help children see each other across borders and foster cross-cultural connection.

MISTER G will perform a dynamic, interactive concert and debut his second picture book, Lilah Tov Good Night - a soothing, bilingual lullaby celebrating the beauty of our world and the spirit of resilience in a refugee family. Following each concert MISTER G will be sign copies of Lilah Tov Good Night, as well as his debut picture book Señorita Mariposa, both of which will be available for purchase in The Carle Bookshop.

Reservations are recommended. Tickets may be purchased in advance at the Museum Admissions Desk or by calling 413.559.6336.
