The Norwalk Symphony presents the second program in its (Not) Just For Kids series on December 8 and 9. From toots to trumpeting, our Celebrate with Horns - Brass! program is fun for kids and for grown-ups alike. Musicians from the Norwalk Symphony show how animal horns evolved into the brass instruments that now form part of the modern orchestra. Because of their varied sizes and valves, different brasses instruments can produce vastly different sounds and rhythms. Our engaging one-hour show and play program will finish with a brass "petting zoo”. Here, youngsters get to make their own sounds on brass instruments.
The music presented on this program will include excerpts from our Joys of the Season - Bach to Pops main series concert, which is on December 16th at 5 p.m. at Norwalk Concert Hall.

The first will be at City Hall Norwalk City Hall on Friday, December 8th at 4:30 p.m. (limited seating call 202 956-6771 to reserve).
