Renaissance Centre & NC Symphony to host “Music Discovery & Instrument Zoo” Nov. 7

The NC Symphony will present a free “Music Discovery & Instrument Zoo” on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at 10 a.m. at the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre for the Arts, 405 S. Brooks St.

Geared for preschool and elementary age children and their families, this hands-on musical activity will feature NC Symphony musician Rachel Niketopoulos reading a children’s book followed by an interactive demonstration of orchestra instruments. Attendees will learn how the horn instruments of the orchestra make their sounds and hear examples of classical and popular music composed for horns.

Afterwards, audience members will have the opportunity to try their favorite instrument in the instrument zoo.

This Music Discovery program is sponsored by PNC's “Grow Up Great” initiative, promoting literacy and arts education for preschoolers and their families.
