Ever wonder how much breath it takes to play a tuba or flute? Or how a violin or cello bow feels in your hand? Thanks to Eckroth Music, you can experience instruments up close. This free hands-on event is fun for the whole family!

Kids Conducting Contest
This annual tradition has become a favorite for the young and the young at heart. Children are invited to come down to the front of the stage at 6:45PM to conduct a march by John Philip Sousa. Guest judges will select four finalists who then vie for a chance to conduct the orchestra on Sousa’s The Liberty Bell March. We’re excited to welcome back all our budding musicians! Wands are available for purchase at the Symphony information tent. | Sponsored by Mayor Bill & Anne Cole
Wands are available for purchase at the Symphony Information Tent for just $2!
