Members of Cumberland Valley Chamber Players, the chamber orchestra in residence at Wilson College, will introduce children participating in Musical Zoo to a different "family" of orchestral instruments each week - strings on Jan. 8 with Cindy Scanzello (violin) and Jane Peatling (cello); percussion on Jan. 15 with Marlin Barnes; woodwinds on Jan. 22 with Ed Stanley (oboe and flute) and Michael Hoover (clarinet and saxophone); and brass on Jan. 29 with Harold Edwards (trumpet, trombone and tuba) and Paul Hopkins (horn).
The Musical Zoo program, which will be limited to 30 children, will be from 10 to 11:30 a.m. There is a $10 fee, which includes all four Saturdays and covers the cost of instrument rentals. Registration, accompanied by the fee, will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis at the Council for the Arts office/gallery at Kerrstown Square, 166 S. Main Street in Chambersburg. Participants must commit to all four Saturdays of Musical Zoo. If there is enough demand, a second class will be added.
