Every Tuesday during out-of-school time, children 5 and under join us for music time. In addition to learning early music and math skills, children get opportunities to build social skills and healthy lifestyles by moving to music with their museum friends. Free with admission.
We will introduce our audience to music in various ways throughout the year by engaging with musicians in the community. This year, we are partnering with four different organizations to bring four exiting musical events throughout the year:
Spring Quarterly Events:
March 11 - Girl Scout Overnight - Music with Jason Currin
Girl Scouts earning their dancer’s and musician’s badges will get an opportunity to learn about percussive instruments around the world in this end-of-the night celebration. This is a special event only for girl scouts who have registered.
March 18 - Furman Petting Zoo
Music students from Furman University will bring their instruments in to give children an up-close and personal look at instruments from the orchestra. They'll be able to use (almost) all their senses as they look at, touch, and listen to brass, percussion, string, and woodwind instruments. Instruments include: Violins, Violas, Cellos, Trombones, Trumpets, Horns, Flutes, Saxophones, Oboes, Percussive instruments and more! Free with admission.
Summer Event: Jazz Collective
Five members from the Jazz Collective will be here to share their love of jazz music by playing familiar and new songs. Children will also get an opportunity to march along in their own Dixieland Parade and play percussive instruments. Free with admission.
Fall Event: Carolina Bronze - Handbell Workshop
Members from the Handbell Choir in Greenville will teach children how handbells are played and teach them early skills in reading music by using colors. Free with admission.
