Save your Sunday! There is another Mini Maestros event coming up March 16th. These are special concerts just for kids 3-8, put on by the Tacoma Symphony. We’re thrilled to be sponsored by Mini Maestros this month, and I know you’ll love how their lively, interactive shows introduce little ones to orchestra music.
Here’s a little more from Jody, the engagement manager:
The Tacoma Symphony Orchestra Mini Maestro series includes three ensemble concerts that focus on the different families of the orchestra. These interactive, close encounters with the professional orchestra musicians are coupled with curriculum prepared by Early Childhood Learning experts to create 45 minute informances that get children engaged both physically and mentally. An instrument petting zoo starts one hour before each concert!
You can try one out Sunday, March 16th. It will feature a Brass Quintet, including horn, trumpet, trombone, and tuba. Jungle Jams will take children on a visit to the deep, dark jungle where they’ll learn how the instruments can sound like animals, and about high and low sounds — the bigger the instrument, the lower the sound! Musical selections will be drawn from Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals, Mancini’s Baby Elephant Walk, and more.
Shows are 2:30 at UPS in Schneebeck Hall, but do be sure to go early for the instrument petting zoo! You can get more information about the performance and purchase tickets here!
