Members of the Grand Junction Symphony will use stories and music to introduce youngsters to string instruments at Symphony Storytime, set for 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Mesa County Libraries Central Library, Fifth Street and Grand Avenue.
Young children will learn about the sounds and history of various orchestra instruments. Children and their parents are encouraged to attend and ask questions about the instruments, the orchestra, and performing. The event will begin with a story or two, followed by a musical demonstration, questions, and an instrument petting zoo.
The Nov. 16 Symphony Storytime is the first in a series of such events at the Central Library. Brass and woodwinds will be the topic on Feb. 1, 2014, and percussion will be the topic on May 3, 2014. Mark your calendars!
