Camphill Kimberton Presents Daria in Concert - A World Music Performance for the Special Needs Community

Daria, an internationally-known folksinger, will present a concert at Camphill Village Kimberton Hills on Saturday, March 10 at 4 p.m. Children and adults with special needs and their families are specially invited to be a part of this performance where Daria shares a wonderful mixture of favorite songs from American and world folk music traditions. She introduces unique authentic instruments and allows the audience to take part in the performance.

For the last two decades, internationally- known folksinger Daria has traveled the globe, learning, sharing and making music while building communities and encouraging a new view of hope and peace for all the world’s children. In the United States, she has won national awards for her children's CDs including a Parent’s Choice Award, a NAPPA (National Association For Parenting Publications) Award and a Children's Music Web Award.

Daria has spent several days this month working with Camphill Kimberton’s residents to create and learn to play their own instruments. The culmination of this workshop is the concert on March 10, where the Camphill Kimberton villagers will perform live with Daria.

Reviews of Daria include:

“When Daria Marmaluk-Hajioannou makes music, the world listens -- literally!” -- Christian Science Monitor

“A NAPPA Award-Winner, Daria delivers an eclectic mix of multicultural tunes with strong hooks and sing-alongs in many languages.” -- www.Parenthood.com

“The children at Melmark have varying special needs, but the music performed and the constant interaction between performer and audience reached all who were present at the assembly. Children who are normally lethargic were moving and dancing to the music. Children who are normally reserved were singing along. The children were actively engaged.” -- Heather Holt, Music Therapist, Melmark School

The concert is free but donations will be accepted. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited. Rose Hall is wheelchair accessible.

Camphill Village Kimberton Hills is located at 1601 Pughtown Road, Kimberton, Pa. The concert will be held in Rose Hall.
