Collect new musical skills! Discover new library books! Learn new dance steps! Kids’ Orchestra invites children, ages 5-11, to an experiential program that combines library books with music
education. Each month, children will explore a theme as they learn about an instrument, sing a song, explore a dance, and play a game – all inspired by a book in the East Baton Rouge Parish Library collection. Books & Music is celebrating this carnival season by placing a spotlight on “When the Saints Go Marching in,” a traditional spiritual that you are very likely to hear during February in Louisiana. You might also hear it at a New Orleans Saints football game. Brass bands in parades often play this melody. Come see Ashley Bryan’s beautiful illustrations in the book Let It Shine. Also, play a partner song game, meet a professional musician, and practice solfege syllables and hand signs. What are those? Come and find out!! See below for opportunities to attend this fun program! All children under the age of 9 must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is required.
