123 Andrés

Sunday, March 03, 2024 @ 1:00pm



Grunin Center
1 College Drive, Toms River, NJ 08754

123 Andrés, the husband-wife team of Andrés and Christina, are teaching artists creating music, books and live shows in Spanish and English for children and families. Each year they perform for tens of thousands of children and families at student matinee and family concerts. Their songs and videos are used in early childhood and elementary classrooms across the US and abroad, and they have charmed live audiences across the US and in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and at several stops in Central America.

Andrés grew up in Bogotá, Colombia, and learned how to play the guitar from his father as a child. He studied clarinet at the Conservatory and had his first studio experience at age eight. He went on to earn a Doctorate in music and win first prize in the National Composition Contest in Colombia for one of his early songs.

Christina was raised in the US, in a Spanish-speaking family hailing from Colombia, and studied theater and dance as a child. After serving as a classroom teacher in public schools and earning a Masters in Education from the University of Pennsylvania, she found her mission teaching through music.

123 Andrés maintains an active calendar of live and virtual concerts, joy-filled shows for student and family audiences, that get everyone singing, moving and learning.

123 Andrés has released eight studio albums, garnering three Latin GRAMMY nominations and a Latin GRAMMY win for Best Children’s Music Album, as well as a GRAMMY nomination in the same category. Their three children’s books have been published by Scholastic. Their latest project is a new podcast currently in development, in collaboration with PBS Kids and PRX.

123 Andrés has been featured by The New York Times, NPR, the Boston Globe, Washington Post, CNN en Español, Univisión, Telemundo and SiriusXM.

Please note, it is the Grunin Center Policy for all Family Shows that all attendees, regardless of age, require a ticket.

This performance is sponsored by RWJBarnabas Health Community Medical Center.
