Ants on a Log

Ants on a log web2 Ants on a log web 1

Ants on a Log is Anya Rose and Julie Beth. Playing “music for children and other childlike people,” their spirited harmonies and clever, concise songwriting engage both children and adults alike. The duo write music that songfully advocates for positivity, social justice, and silliness! In their daytime jobs, Julie is a music therapist, and Anya is an elementary science teacher at an all-boys school. Together as The Ants, they will put together a new show for families that is steeped in science and gender stereotypes. This project will emphasize the role of curiosity, questioning, qualitative data, and community-building in pursuit of science and problem-solving, rather than the typical didactic science class model. Ants on a Log will perform this show at the Rotunda November 13th, 2016 at 11am and 3pm, and November 19th at 11am.
