Symphony Saturdays: Percussion

08 Oct 2016

Free Event

Registrations are now being accepted for the 2016 “Symphony Saturdays”, a cooperative program of the Maryland Symphony Orchestra and the Allegany Arts Council. It’s a wonderful hands-on opportunity for elementary school-aged children (grades 1-5) to work with professional musicians from the Maryland Symphony Orchestra and learn more about the four families of symphonic instruments. No previous experience is required and instruments will be available for all children to use during the workshop sessions. The sessions take place at the Allegany Arts Council galleries located at 9 N. Centre St, Cumberland, MD for four consecutive Saturdays beginning on September 17 and ending on October 8. Each of the four instrument families (Strings, Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion) will have two session options: Session "A" from 12:30 to 1:30pm, and Session "B" from 2:00am to 3:00. On a first-come, first-served basis, children may be pre-registered for as few as one session or as many as four (one session with each of the instrument families). Contact the Allegany Arts Council for more information or to register a child. 301.777.2787 Parents may also register online at www.alleganyartscouncil.org

To register, please fill out the following form: https://docs.google.com/a/alleganyarts.org/forms/d/1fuPPzCx7Dtsk4nZ40mzbVj5BhiCpS245DpEj1M__vUc/edit?ts=57bf0bb8
