PSO Percussion Kinderkonzert Series, Beginning May 18

Portland Symphony Orchestra Presents Kinderkonzert Series on Percussion Instruments Beginning May 18
Introducing young children to instrument families and musical concepts

PORTLAND, Maine The Portland Symphony Orchestra (PSO) begins its last Kinderkonzert series of the 2008-09 season with "Percussion: Wood, Metal, Skins!" The programs will travel to six Southern Maine locations May 18 through May 29.

The PSO Percussion trio will introduce kids aged three to seven to their fascinating array of both standard and unusual percussion instruments. They'll see and hear how wood, metal and "skins" are used to create rhythms and melodies. The "Percussion: Wood, Metal, Skins!" program opens on May 18 at the South Hiram Elementary School and then travels to five other locations for a total of 15 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.

Sponsored by Time Warner Cable, all Portland Symphony Orchestra Kinderkonzert tickets are $3 per person with advance reservation, $4 at the door (adult or child). For additional information, reservations and ticketing information visit or call (207) 773-6128.
