From the Pink Flamingo Can-Can, to Love Bug, Val's shows are guaranteed to delight tots, tweens, teens, and the timeworn, as well!

Diversity and Inclusion

CMN stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement across the world. We are committed to cultivate a welcoming and affirming space, promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in our organization and the world at large. We recognize the positive power of music to shape children’s sense of fairness and justice, to teach the enormous importance of often-marginalized cultures to our music traditions, and to amplify the voices of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People Of Color), LGBTQI+ communities, and people of all abilities. We pledge to lead with humility, to continue our advocacy and support our members in theirs.
