The Farquhar Auditorium will be filled with children’s voices Sunday as Will Stroet brings his high-energy and interactive music to the University of Victoria venue.

Stroet is the co-creator and star of the musical TV series Wills Jams on Kids’ CBC television. Along with his Backyard Band, Stroet will perform an energetic and educational 50-minute musical show with fun actions and sing-a-long choruses in both English and French.

Drawing from his own experiences, Stroet creates songs and stories that entertain the whole family with his highly participatory concerts.
