“Tour of the Towns:” North End Music & Performing Arts Center (NEMPAC) brings Instrument Playground to Charlestown!

NEMPAC and the Eureka Musicians’ Ensemble are bringing their fun and interactive Instrument Petting Zoos to Charlestown.  At each event, Eureka musicians and NEMPAC instructors will teach children about the different instruments they use, and help them try out the instruments. Children will get to touch, play, and learn about instruments of all types, including violins, clarinets, trumpets and hand drums, while playing fun games.

The Charlestown event will be held on Thursday, May 18, 4:00-5:15 p.m. at the Charlestown Branch Library, 179 Main Street.

NEMPAC and the Eureka Musician’s Ensemble will team up in an exciting “Tour of the Towns” this summer, bringing their fun and interactive Instrument Petting Zoos to Charlestown and Beacon Hill. At each event, Eureka musicians and NEMPAC Instructors will work with children to teach them about the different instrument groups that they specialize in, as well as to help them try out the instruments themselves. From violins to clarinets to trumpets, children will get to touch, play, and learn about instruments of all types, from playing fun call and repeat games on the hand drums to trying to produce a clear note on the trumpet.

 

Free and open to the public! We encourage all ages and abilities to join us.
