Children’s entertainer

Will Stroet comes to Rossland

Children’s entertainer, Will Stroet, will be at Rossland Public Library, July 15.

Will Stroet’s performances are often described as bilingual rock concerts for kids.

Songs like Bike Safety Boogie and Full of Beans have the audience dancing and singing to the catchy beat.

Your child can experience this talented, energetic entertainer and songwriter at the Rossland Public Library for free on July 15 at 2 p.m.

The Rossland Public Library and the Kootenay Library Federation are excited about bringing Will Stroet to Rossland. He has done more that 750 shows across Canada and now stars in his own TV show, Will’s Jams, on Kids’ CBC.

Kim Wilson, head of programming for Kids’ CBC, said, “Will is a talented Canadian children’s entertainer who has a genuine connection with kids and sings fun, infectious and educational songs for the whole family.”

As a former French immersion music teacher and a father, Will knows how to engage and entertain kids. He discovered his talent for writing children’s music while completing his bachelor of education at UBC.

After releasing his first CD in 2005, Let’s All Dance, and receiving great reviews from families and event organizers, Will knew he had found his calling. In 2009, Will left teaching to pursue a full-time career as a musician and has never looked back.

Will has released three English albums and three in French that have garnered national recognition, including a West Coast Songwriter’s Award, approval from the Parents’ Choice Awards and multiple nominations from the Western Canadian Awards, Canadian Folk Music Awards and Sirius XM Indies (Canadian Independent Music Awards).
