Many families who are longtime participants in Albion’s Kindermusik program gathered on Thursday, June 30, to play and sing together one last time before the program closes.
Owner and licensed Kindermusik educator Alison Kern is closing up shop after six years in Albion, because her family is moving to the Kansas City area in late July.
“I’m so sad to be saying goodbye to the kids and families I’ve worked with over the years,” Kern said. “When I started the program in 2010, I was hoping to just have enough kids to make a class for my son, Noah, who was a baby then. As it turned out, more than 160 kids came through the program, and I couldn’t be prouder of all the ways they’ve grown.”
Kern will continue teaching the music and movement classes as part of a large Kindermusik program in the Kansas City area.
