Saturday July 23rd, the graduate students of ECU's Educational Arts Program organized a Back to School Festival at the North Greenville Boys and Girls Club for the families of Pitt County and asked the Music Academy to come out with their Musical Petting Zoo.
Our Zoo Keepers, Cheryl Stephenson and Kathryn Holley, guided children and their parents on how to play woodwind, brass, string, and percussion instruments, and how the Music Academy can help them get started on their musical journeys.
The look of excitement on each child's face when they played their first notes was priceless. We look forward to providing more of these events in the near future.
If you have a community event coming up and want the musical petting zoo, please contact the Music Academy of Eastern Carolina.
