ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sisters Jen and Wendy Bernard reap the rewards of a musical upbringing, spreading the joy of song through interactive performances for kids. Their musical children's programs have enthralled audiences of all sizes, from the smallest library to the largest auditorium.

Their performance style is best described as theatrical and wacky, with a constant focus on vocal harmony and crowd participation. The songs themselves are eclectic and run the gamut from social consciousness to unmentionable green slime. Jen and Wendy create a whirlwind of positive, enthusiastic energy, engaging kids and parents alike.

Jen and Wendy's performance history goes way back to their shared childhood in Northern Michigan. With both parents coming from highly musical families, the girls were raised with daily exposure to music from a very early age. Attending the same university, Jen and Wendy established a repertoire of songs, and before long they were performing in front of diverse audiences. Among their early performances were the East Lansing Arts Festival, the Michigan Festival, Border's Bookstore, Barnes and Noble Bookstore, Jocundry's Books, Okemos Nursery School, Greater Lansing Artspace, Roeper Academy of Bloomfield Hills, the Cadillac Arts Festival, Gopherwood Folk Society and Lake City Elementary School.

Upon reuniting in Portland, Oregon a few years hence, Jen and Wendy hit the library circuit, and have performed all over Oregon and Washington in literally a hundred library programs, particularly during Summer Reading season. They've played for countless private birthday parties, as well as local concert series such as the Blue Lake Summer Series and the Oxbow Park Campfire Program. They are very excited to be releasing their long-awaited CD, "I Dare You!," chock full of original wackiness.

Jen Bernard works as a music instructor, professional performer, music agent and event producer. She plays guitar, piano and flute, and manages a hardworking chamber folk ensemble, "The Ariel Consort," in addition to giving lessons in voice and piano. Jen is also a published songwriter with a self-produced album entitled, "Losing My Skin." Jen's natural love of music is inherent in her work, and she brings great spirit and joie de vivre to all her exploits.

Wendy Bernard is a middle school educator who works in Beaverton, having previously taught several years at various elementary levels. She currently teaches sixth grade language arts and social studies and holds a Master of Arts in Teaching with a literacy endorsement. Wendy often incorporates music and songwriting into her instructional day, as a tool for creative learning as well as a vehicle for pure fun.
