Marquette Symphony Orchestra performs

The Marquette Symphony Orchestra performs a free Summer Strings children’s concert at the Peter White Public Library Wednesday evening as part of the library’s summer reading program. “Kids love music,” said Sarah Rehborg, Youth Services librarian. “It’s an experience for them, it gets them excited about maybe playing music themselves. I like to say music is a different kind of literacy. When you learn to read music, it’s learning teamwork and cooperation and how to be a part of a large group, but still be responsible for yourself and your responsibility to that group. Kids going into music learn a whole set of skills other kids maybe don't get the chance to have. So I think it’s a great experience and I think it’s great they offer free programs like this for kids to come to and get them excited.” (Journal photo by Trinity Carey)
