Mark DeRose

Title of Program: Mark DeRose Music & Art

Description: Mark DeRose Music & Art’s show combines Mark’s love for the visual arts with his love for songwriting. Mark’s songs, artwork, videos and the show’s activities all complement one another in an effort to communicate his message that encourages his young listeners to embrace and enjoy life to its fullest, be creative individuals, and most importantly, confidently be themselves.

Presenter Bio: For 3 years (’12 to ’15), Mark had the pleasure of performing and working as a sideman in the children’s music market (Steven Courtney & the Suitcase Musicians, Bassist). He never realized how rewarding it would be to perform for this demographic. When Mark’s tenure with that project came to a close, he quickly began his own work as a solo artist in the children’s entertainment market. Since then, he’s been working very regularly within the Pennsylvania Library Summer Reading System and the overall children’s music/entertainment market.
