"...Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”" Matthew 19:14
We have a variety of crafts and activities to engage your little ones through the day and, more importantly, to help them learn more about the beautiful faith that is ours! All we offer to our younger guests is our effort to let Christ's children come to Him: with all their creativity, spunk, silliness and joy through art and song!
main stage children's act
Libby Chiaradonna received a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree from Loyola University of Chicago in 2000, and has been singing and playing guitar and piano since childhood. From 2002 to 2012, she taught early childhood education. She began her music program in 2005 at a wonderful school where she had the privilege to be the in-house music teacher for 8 years.
Over the years, working with children ranging from newborns to middle-schoolers, she has developed a music program that teaches children both academic and musical lessons through songs, games, and movement.
In 2014, she started Ms. Libby’s Music, Inc. to bring her music program to kids all over town. In 2021, she opened her own studio in St. Charles, MO. She can honestly say that it is as much fun for her as it is for the kids!
Ms. Libby lives in O'Fallon, Missouri with her husband and four children.
Ms. Libby will be performing on the main stage from 11:30 to noon.
