Tryon Palace Hosts Free North Carolina Symphony Music Discovery Program

Tryon Palace will host a free program for preschoolers presented by the North Carolina Symphony at the North Carolina History Center Wednesday, May 10, from 3:30-5 p.m.

Preschool-aged children are invited to join North Carolina Symphony horn player Rachel Niketopoulos in a reading of a children’s book about music, followed by an interactive demonstration of the horn. The audience will also learn how the instruments of the orchestra make their sounds and hear examples of classical and popular music composed for the horn. After the demonstration, everyone in the audience will have the opportunity to try their favorite instrument in the instrument zoo.

Music Discovery program is sponsored by PNC’s Grow Up Great initiative, promoting literacy and arts education for preschoolers and their families. The North Carolina Symphony education programs, presented across the state, engage more than 55,000 students of all ages each year.
