Thanks to Coupon Katie for this local information about the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra:

String quartets from the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra imagewill travel to local libraries during the month of November to read stories and play music for pre-school aged children as part of the orchestra’s Story Time Program.  The theme for this season’s program is Shall We Dance?  Musicians will read books that introduce string instruments (I Know A Shy Fellow Who Swallowed A Cello) and explore the different types of dance (Giraffes Can’t Dance), as well as do the Hokey-Pokey.  These performances will prepare children for the KSO’s Family Concert on November 22 featuring the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra and animated character Picardy Penguin.
