On Friday, July 17, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts invited approximately 160 kids from the Town of Wallkill Boys and Girls Clubs and Town of Fallsburg Summer Day Camps to gather inside the Event Gallery for a free, private performance and Q&A Session with The Kidz Bop Kids.
The No. 1 music brand for youth, Kidz Bop Kids has sold more than 15 million albums over the past 15 years.
This once in a lifetime opportunity offered each child the chance to enjoy a private performance featuring covers of some of today's most popular hits, and ask questions of The Kidz Bop Kids, who performed the next day on the Pavilion Stage for a crowd of over 3,000 fans.
During the Q&A, The Kidz covered topics ranging from what it's like to tour the country, to the inspiration they draw from doing what they love, to the way they lean on one another for support. After the show they enjoyed a meet and greet with the band members, and will each receive a copy of their latest CD.

“We were delighted to help facilitate this special and intimate opportunity for our local Boys and Girls Clubs,” said Darlene Fedun, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts CEO. “Full of talent and enthusiasm, The Kidz Bop Kids treated our youth to not only an engaging performance, but also shared the important ways that the arts and music have shaped their young lives. We were amazed by their talent, insight, and willingness to help inspire their fellow young people,” Fedun continued.
In addition to their two performances, the Kidz Bop Kids found time to explore The Museum at Bethel Woods including its latest special exhibit, “Threads,” where they enjoyed the Rock Star Photo Booth, posting pictures to their individual Twitter and Instagram pages.
