LENOX, Mass. — The Mount, Edith Wharton's Home, will host a free dual-language concert and Storywalk at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 11, featuring beloved children's author and musician, MISTER G. 

The 2015 Latin Grammy award-winner for Best Children's Album, MISTER G is a star in the world of family music. Called "a bilingual rockstar" by The Washington Post, and "irresistible" by People magazine, Mister G has received national critical acclaim and won three Parents' Choice Gold Awards.

The concert and Storywalk on The Mount's grounds, at 2 Plunkett Street, will fuse music and storytelling based on MISTER G's picture book Señorita Mariposa. Illustrated by Marcos Almada Rivero, the story chronicles the extraordinary migration of monarch butterflies from Canada to México, and aims to inspire the next generation of eco-activists and spark dialogue about global citizenship and environmental stewardship.

"We are excited to host MISTER G as part of a larger initiative to expand programming for kids who add vibrancy to the property with their curiosity and enthusiasm," said Patricia Pin, The Mount's Director of Public Programming. 

Families are encouraged to bring a picnic to enjoy on the grounds before or after the concert. Kids' snacks will also be available. Registration is not required to attend this free event. The concert will take place under a large outdoor tent, rain or shine.

This event is presented in partnership with South Berkshire Kids and made possible by generous support from the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
