Engaging Performances by the Cascade Quartet and Chinook Winds
The interactive concert features the Symphony’s resident chamber ensembles, the Cascade Quartet (two violins, viola, and cello ) and Chinook Winds (flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet and horn) as well as an instrument petting zoo. After each ensemble performs a brief interactive program, kids of all ages can indulge their curiosity, and try out the instruments they have just seen in action.
Musical Instrument Petting Zoo
The instrument petting zoo, made possible by Eckroth Music, will include a wide array of strings, winds, and brass instruments. Anyone interested in trying out a musical instrument is encouraged to attend Chamber Fun 101. Musicians from the Great Falls Symphony, Cascade Quartet and Chinook Winds, and the Great Falls Youth Orchestra will help facilitate the instrument petting zoo.
