The Billings Symphony invites children of all ages and their parents to the Billings Public Library for a musical instrument adventure anytime between 9:30-11:30am! Pick up your passport at the door and stroll the streets of musical instruments within the library: String Street, Woodwind Way, Brass Boulevard, and Percussion Plaza. Get your passport stamped at each station, where Billings Symphony musicians will help you … bow a violin or cello … pucker up to a trumpet … clack a castanet … get a note out of a clarinet … and more! You’ll have great fun learning about the different types of orchestra instruments, how each one creates a unique sound, and how they are played by our symphony musicians.
The adventure continues at 11:30AM with The Magnificent Magical Musical Time Machine, a special musical presentation by the Billings Symphony Brass Quintet! This entertaining and educational mini-concert will take listeners of all ages on a journey through the historical eras of music, combining a wide variety of music with a fun and engaging narrative. Brief brass instrument demos will also be part of the event, which is free and open to all.
