Create Recycled Musical Instruments (Ages 5-11)

 

1/25/2017  4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

We'll hear the true story Ada's Violin about a group of children in Paraguay who learned to play orchestra instruments made from trash then create our own instruments with recycled materials. Please bring any coffee cans, oatmeal containers, small boxes or any other items that might make fun sounds!

While kids arriving & during crafts, showed Youtube selections of their performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfeixjFB-AM&list=RDMkTQQ0m8Ys8&index=12
