Greentopia Gets Grooving

Rochester's High Falls neighborhood will play host to this year's Greentopia, an event called a "Vibrant Celebration of Sustainability".

For 40 minutes on Sunday, parents and kids can work on sustaining another kind of practice, healthy exercise.

Terry Fonda-Smith of The Harley School is bringing in some of her most talented student muscians.

She said "Bebop is sort of the jazz side, Bach is more the classical side...Bebop is such a great action word and it's engaging to kids and us."

Its called the Bebop to Bach concert.

They will provide the soundtrack to an unorthadox support group, kids and parents playing instruments made of recycled materials.

Fonda-Smith added "Some of these things are bathroom cups and popcorn and dried black peas and duct tape and popsicle sticks and cardboard that we found at the recycling shop."

The concert is for parents and kids ages 2-10.

Fonda-Smith says its a crucial age to teach children the connection between music and movement, and how both can be fun.
