Classical music touches the heart and inspires the imagination. Join us for a "just-right" concert performed by kids for kids as the amazing musicians from Lyra Music Workshop's Young Artist Program present classical solo and chamber works.

Hear how these young musicians bring their instruments to life and join us after the concert for some hands-on fun, as Lyra Music and Stamell Stringed Instruments welcome you to their Instrument Petting Zoo! Have you ever wondered what it feels like to hold a violin or play a cello? Our concert will be followed by a chance to get up-close with the instruments of the classical string family through guided exploration with Stamell String mentors.
