During the week he leads weekly programs in music and supported play for families with young children with special needs.

Gill will sing songs from each of his four recordings, including "The Sneezing Song", "The Silly Dance Contest" and "Toe Leg Knee".

Tickets are $5 for members and $8 for non-members. Tickets are on sale at Buzz Cafe and Wonder Works.

Sponsors of this concert include the Oak Park Area Visitors Bureau (www.visitoakpark.com) and Downtown Oak Park (www.shopoakpark.com).

Gill's show is part of Wonder Works' concert series. The final two concerts will be on Sunday, February 20 with Joel Frankel and Sunday, March 20 with Susan Salidor (with the "Susan and Dot" show); both concerts begin at 4pm.

Sponsorships are available beginning at $125 and include a mention on our web site, in the museum, through our newsletter to Wonder Works' 1,000-plus members and on the day of the show.
