The Children’s Museum of the East End will host its second annual Music Fair on Saturday, June 14, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The fair, which is free and open to families with children of all ages, will let kids learn about music with hands-on, interactive programs and well-known East End performers.

At the fair, attendees will be able to join an improvisational mural painting alongside artist Bob Crimi and musician Jim Turner and join a sing-along with Inda Eaton.

Mr. Turner has recorded albums, played on TV and radio, and appeared in musicals both on and off Broadway as well as being a regular sight at on the East End music scene.

Ms. Eaton is a singer-songwriter and educator who co-founded Ideas to Inspire, which is a music-infused supplemental education program that explores inspiration, song writing and self-expression.

Kids will also be able to jam Ina Ferrara of Music Together by the Dunes, enjoy a Catherine Shay production, create their own tin drum and rain stick, get their face painted and explore instruments throughout the museum grounds.
