SLO Symphony trained professor offering orchestral demonstrations
–Through a live demonstration by a SLO Symphony-trained presenter, a video demonstration of a Youth Symphony student, and a hands-on chance to try instruments, children will have two opportunities to learn about orchestral instruments:
Tuesday, July 2, 10:30 am Georgia Brown Multipurpose Room (526 36th St.)
Tuesday, July 2, 2:00 pm City Library
During the SLO Symphony’s Notes in Class presentation, the “Zoo Keeper” will teach students how sound works and the various ways sounds can be created by playing on each instrument group of an orchestra: strings (vibration of the strings), brass (vibration of the lips), winds (vibration of the reed and body of the instrument), and percussion (vibration of different materials).
Youth Services Librarian, Melissa Bailey, asks, “Did you know that there is no sound in deep space? Come learn all sorts of interesting facts about sound with the San Luis Obispo Symphony during their Notes in Class program. Be prepared to listen, learn, and play as children will have the opportunity to try their hand at some symphony instruments!”
Due to the length and content of this program, it is more suitable for children over the age of five, but all are welcome. Free tickets are required for the 2 p.m. program in the Library and will be available at the Children’s Desk 30 minutes prior to the program. Tickets are not required for the 10:30 a.m. Georgia Brown Multipurpose Room program. For more information about children’s programming, visit prcity.com/library.
