The Greensboro Symphony OrKIDStra series combines music and literacy. Children’s books are brought to life through performances by the Greensboro Symphony Percussion Ensemble, larger-than-life illustrations, and sing-a-longs in highly engaging performances led by acclaimed storyteller Logie Meachum.
Over the past five years, thousands of four-year-olds from Guilford Child Development’s Head Start program have enjoyed performances in the UNCG Recital Hall. Many parents have been able to attend with their children. Copies of the featured titles have been donated to the Guilford Child Development centers so that all children may have books to read at home with their families.
