WCUC’s first ever Instrument Exploration event was a success! Children (and adults!) were treated to fascinating demonstrations of unique and engaging instruments and plenty of time to explore the wide variety of sounds and playing techniques. Have you ever seen a shruti box or psaltery? Have you ever played a hurdy-gurdy? We did, and it was impossible to pick a favorite! A very special thanks to Jim Barkovic and Nan Gibbons, our new Young People’s Music Director, for sharing their instruments and their musical gifts with us.
