Books and Music with the Kids’ Orchestra

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.

December 21 is the winter solstice, so December is a perfect time to study the stars! The shortest day of the year. The Books and Music program will introduce several books illustrating “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,” including one by an astronomy professor! Children will not only sing the well-known song, but they will also learn how to play the melody on a glockenspiel. Don’t know what that is? Come find out!
