Hey band members,
Flute section member Bev Peterson here. I currently work with Cascade Festival of Music, and have a great opportunity for you to plug your instrument and CWSB. Read on:
Cascade Festival of Music is having a free Children’s Concert on Tuesday August 28 in Drake Park. Before the afternoon concert, from 12:45 to 1:30, is a "Petting Zoo" – an opportunity to let kids check out musical instruments up close and personal. Musicians demonstrate their instruments and can also let kids touch or try them. Eli, CFM’s event coordinator, assures me that the trying/touching by kids is optional, but if someone has an old instrument to bring that might be better. I am planning on bringing my current flute for demonstration purposes as well as my starter flute for kids to try.
If you are interested in participating/volunteering or for more information please email Eli Liliedahl-Allen at the festival office: firstname.lastname@example.org. She would like to know your instrument as well as your mailing address.
Everyone is welcome to stay for the free concert at 1:30; Les Yeux Noirs, which is also playing the evening concert, will be performing. Their music is a gypsy/klezmer blend that sounds like a lot of fun. We’d love to see you there! Feel free to pass thus info along to anyone with kids!
