Last week La Maternelle et Les Grandes sections went to the Freeport Performing Art Center to listen to The Portland Symphony Orchestra's quartet plays some AESOP's Fables.
The children were able to explore a wide range of musical instruments and learn more about what it was like to play in a professional orchestra!
|The PSO's quartet+1|
In each fables, one instrument represented an animal. The flute was the tiny mouse, the French horn the lion.
One of the songs played was "The Country Mouse and The City Mouse" and
"The Fox and The Cheese"
|Each musician presented the characteristics of his instrument to the students, giving them a closer look at specific instruments.|
