Clark recently brought together the Portland Symphony Orchestra and LearningWorks through our sponsorship of the instrument petting zoo! Members of the orchestra gathered at the Presumpscot Elementary School, instruments in hand, to show students the sounds of a violin, viola, and cello. A first for many (adults included!). Participating students and their families get tickets to the PSO’s upcoming Discovery Concert, to see these instruments in action.
A few quotes from the students:
This was the first time I ever got to play a cello!
We got to hold it and move the bow on it and the strings are made from horsehair!
Cool! We got to play all the instruments!
Next up on the instrument petting zoo tour is a collaboration with the Center for Grieving Children. Photos coming soon!
