Thanks to collaboration from the N.C. Symphony and PNC Bank, Wake County libraries have been hosting music discovery programs for kids ages 3 to 5 and their adults.
The free programs have moved around to different Wake libraries. They continue through the end of this month. Here's what's on tap for the final two programs:
- Symphony flutist Mary Boone will visit Cameron Village Library from 11 a.m. to noon, Aug. 28.
- Symphony bassoonist John Pederson will visit and include the book "Farmer Joe and the Music Show" by Tony Mitton during his program. It's from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., Aug. 29, at Southeast Regional Library in Garner.
They'd like participants to sign up for the event. To do that, click here and then follow the link for the library locations. From there, search for the event on the events page.
This is a good time to note that series tickets are available for the symphony's fantastic Young People's Concerts. My family has had season tickets to these concerts for the last several years. The hour-long programs, designed for kids ages 4 to 12, are great introductions to classical music. You'll not only hear music, but also take in some other art form, including dance or drama. The Halloween Spooktacular, set for Nov. 2 this year, is becoming a family tradition.
