Listen @ the Library | Canton Symphony Orchestra

Listen @ the Library

Supported by the
Hoover Foundation.

In collaboration with the Stark Libraries, the CSO presents Listen @ the Library!

Experience how music and literature fit together during this educational event. Stark Library staff read aloud favorite stories while Canton Symphony Orchestra musicians provide a backdrop of music. This fall, join us to hear two stories: Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andrede; illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees, and Chicks Run Wild, written by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen, illustrated by Ward Jenkins. Children will enjoy the interplay between the written word and music as the musicians add to the read aloud experience with sound effects and background music. Members of the Orchestra will also teach children about their instruments and the instrument families between each story.

There will be performances a total of 10 performances! See below for information on locations and times. To register, please click the links below.
