Landau helps kids


Bring on Spring
Madison-area childrens entertainer David Landau
returned to his Verona roots he taught first grade in the
city for 11 years to lead a Bring on Spring concert
Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Verona Area High School Perform-
ing Arts Center. The auditorium was packed with parents
and kids: many found it too challenging to stay in their
seats and opted to dance in the aisles instead, something
Landau encourages in his interactive songs.
Landau, voted the 2016 Childrens Performer of the
Year by the Madison Area Music Association, performs
at schools, libraries and other locations throughout the
state. For information, visit his website at happytrails.biz.
