PORTLAND SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA PRESENTS KINDERKONZERT SERIES ON BRASS INSTRUMENTS BEGINNING FEBRUARY 13

Introducing young children to instrument families and musical concepts

PORTLAND, Maine The Portland Symphony Orchestra (PSO) kick off its second Kinderkonzert series of 2009 with "Brass: Blast Off!" The programs will travel to nine Southern Maine locations February 13 through March 25.

The PSO Brass Quintet (trumpets, French horn, trombone and tuba) will take space explorers aged 3-7 on a journey to a galaxy far, far away to explore the stars and planets through music. The "Brass: Blast Off!" program opens on February 13 at Windham High School and then travels to eight other locations for a total of 23 performances.

Kinderkonzerts are entertaining, interactive programs with Portland Symphony musicians where kids ages 3 - 7 can sing, dance, wiggle, clap, and have fun listening and learning about music and instruments. School systems can coordinate the Kinderkonzert visit with Science and English Language Arts instruction in addition to Visual and Performing Arts. Specially prepared worksheets designed to support Maine's Learning Results are available online or by contacting the PSO.
