Meet the Cello

Meet the Cello

We have added an extra program to our summer activities! Don’t miss your chance to learn about the cello with The Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. During this program, children will learn about the instrument as well as the musical concepts of rhythm, pitch and tempo. Each child will even be given the opportunity to try out a child sized version of the instrument!

Meet the Cello will be held on Monday, July 17 at 11:00 a.m. immediately following preschool storytime in the Youth Program Room. All ages are welcome to attend and no registration is required. Please contact the Youth Services Department in person or by calling 262-754-1814 with any questions.
