Music and Make Believe

(News, Events, Community, Music) Permanent link

250 preschoolers and over 100 of their parents, teachers, and caregivers enjoyed our most recent Music & Make Believe programs.  Music & Make Believe is a collaboration between the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra and the Kalamazoo Public Library where children 4-6 years old come to hear a story read, accompanied by a string quartet.  In our latest sessions, the book was Berlioz the Bear by Jan Brett so all the children made bear hats to take home.

Music & Make Believe is one of my favorite programs we do here at the library and I am so happy to be part of something that gives children a chance to experience top quality live music for free.  We schedule Music & Make Believe programs twice a year:  in the Fall around September or October and in the Winter around February or March.  These are programs you need to register for so keep your eyes open for the next set of programs.  It's really an opportunity you shouldn't miss.
