Big Idea Committee
Listen to inspire your creativity, imagination, and most importantly your BIGGEST dreams! Your imagination can take you anywhere! Think BIG, let your ideas soar!
Creative collaborators Christine Petrini (songwriter/vocals) and Melissa Brun (songwriter/cello/vocals), along with the charming and dapper Karl the Cello, invite you to join the committee and see what’s on the agenda! The album includes the award winning “Spring!” (John Lennon Songwriting Contest) heard on WXPN’s Kids Corner along with 10 additional tracks! Big Idea Committee is all about collaboration and Rodney Whittenberg (Producer/Recording Engineer), Peter Humphreys (Mastering Engineer), along with featured artists Lucy Kalantari (2x GRAMMY Award® winner), Jordan McCree, Vince di Mura, Paula Breslin-Perry, Liz Filios, Monnette Sudler, Tim Wolfe, Marybeth Kern, Kanako Omae Neale and 21 young performers all contributed their big ideas to this album!
The album follows the sequence of a meeting where big thinkers gather to make plans for fun all year! After a big welcome and setting the agenda, the committee gets down with the kindness groove. Then, get ready to move, move, move as the Big Idea Committee visits the Eiffel Tower, roasts marshmallows, roars like monsters and much more. When it’s time to say goodbye, use your imagination and explore what you can do together tomorrow! All in favor say, “Aye!”.

We paused it to think about the things that she would need to go swimming into places like the Gulf of Mexico. She even went and grabbed her snorkels to mimic. Music has a way of elevating your world."

"Petrini (songwriter/vocals) and Brun (songwriter/cello/vocals) have created a wonderful collection of kid-friendly songs that parents won’t mind listening to either (thank you for that!). In fact, we can all learn some important messages from their music- “wear your kindness when you wake up” is a line from the jazzy “Kindness Rocks” and come on, we should all be doing that!"
"If you have a chance to see Big Idea Committee live, do it. Petrini and Brun, along with Karl the Cello, will have you dancing and starting conversations with your little
