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.

Have you ever baked a load of bread? What’s the word for bread in Spanish? Do you know any songs about bread? Discover the book, Bread is for Eating, where Mamacita tells her child about a loaf’s journey from seed to plant to harvest to market to table, all while singing a song called “El pan es para comer”. Learn some simple salsa dance steps, meet professional musicians, sing two new songs, and play a memory game about food, bread, and days of the week.

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.
