Aubrey Grosso, a Tara Elementary School second grader, danced and sang along as Jack Hartmann performed "The Penguin Song."
It was her favorite song of the concert because she's been listening to it since she was 5 years old.
"It was so cool and fun, and it made me happy," Grosso said.
Hartmann, who creates educational music for children, performed for the pre-K through second grade students Sept. 14.
The students were quick to follow along with Hartmann's dance moves, and many already were familiar with his song lyrics.
Tara Principal Laura Campbell said classes often will listen to Hartmann's music during recess. Before the pandemic, Campbell said Hartmann had been coming to the school to perform for years.
"It feels like he's part of our school culture and family because the kids remember him," she said. "(The concert) is an opportunity to bring the primary grades together."
