Another Awesome Library Event

Since our Homeschool co-op is on holiday break, I've been looking for other stuff to keep us out and about.  This last week, our library hosted a local high school orchestra.  Reid Ross Classical School entertained us with many holiday tunes, along with a few others.  

A person came forward to talk to the kids about each instrument for a few minutes.  We learned that the violin can get really high.  
We heard music from the polar express, a little mermaid medley, the pink panther song along with many more.  

When individuals stepped forward to present their particular instrument, they also played a small section of a preschool song, like Mary Had a Little Lamb.  Sorry folks, I'm having a brain delay and can not think of the word I'm looking for here.  It's not lullaby, it's something else.  Oh well, I think you know what I mean.  
The cello also played a small piece of classical music for us.  

Doing the Pink Panther dance.  

The girls had a great time, and so did it.  Joshua also loved the music.  He was was bouncing around like he normally only does after I eat.  Our personal concert lasted for an hour.  After the school played for us, they offered up their instruments for the kids to touch and strum.  Pretty brave, if you ask me.  Hannah and Riley strummed them all.  
So we saw four instruments showcased; the violin, the viola, the cello and the bass.  
Hannah's favorite was the violin.  

Coming up this week: story time with Santa.
