Fredonia Oboe Trio to give children’s concert at Barker Library

The Fredonia Oboe Trio

The Fredonia Oboe Trio, comprised of School of Music students Michael Banko of West Seneca and Erin Rush, of Lockport, and Sarah Hamilton, associate professor of oboe, will perform two children’s concerts on Saturday, Oct. 25, at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m., at Darwin Barker Library in Fredonia.

"The children's concerts are enjoyable, child-appropriate opportunities for very young children to interact with music and musicians. For the young audience and the performers, music becomes a playmate to join in a thrilling adventure," said Jill Reese, assistant professor of music and co-organizer at the School of Music. Both half-hour concerts are free and open to the public.

"During these events, learning and teaching among the children and the student musicians is mutual: children learn about music through moving, listening, and creating, and our student musicians learn to engage young imaginations and ignite new musical passions!"

The Children's Concert Series is part of the Musical Journeys Program, a community outreach project offered by the Fredonia School of Music. More information is available at www.fredonia.edu/music/community/ccs.asp or call (716) 673-4628.
