Anyone who lives in the Tahoe area or visits with an ear to the sounds around them knows that there is a thriving local music scene here. Whether it's concerts in parks, beach-fronts, resorts, festivals, bars, clubs, or headline stages, there seems to be music everywhere you go. What has been lacking was a place for the uninitiated to work their way in - to find a way to begin a journey through the variety of music being produced here.
The KidZone Museum of Truckee has stepped-in to fill this void. A 21st-century update to the old movie plot ("Hey, we can put on a show right here to raise money for the kids!"), the artists of Tahoe have donated their work for this compilation CD, and all profits from sales of the disc go to funding the Children's Museum.
Although the production effort behind the disc is from the KidZone, the music on the disc itself is not "kids' stuff" but accurately reflects the sort of sounds you'd hear from the local artists at the shows around town. There is quite a variety of music to be heard: from straight-ahead rock to shades of urban, alternative and acoustic. It's all good, all original, and all local.
Take an audio vacation to Tahoe with us anytime, and help our community to continue improving our efforts in serving children.
Children's museums facilitate learning through play, interaction and exploration. The KidZone Museum is a small-but-growing, non-profit children's museum, incorporating experiences which are unique to the Tahoe area. Like other children's museums throughout the US, the KidZone is enjoying a surge in popularity as families have begun to take-to-heart the notion that education is best-served when it is not confined to a classroom. Truckee's KidZone is always exploring ways to increase our positive impact on children and families, and is currently working with the community to plan an expansion into a larger facility.
